The Anti-Racism Charter in Recreation was launched in October 2022 as part of the RNS Annual Conference. Find the Anti-Racism Charter and associated documents and resources below.

Thank you to all who contributed to the Charter and the launch Summit itself, including graphic recorder James Neish who captured everything so well:

Anti Racism Charter in Recreation

Project Overview

There has been an escalation of racist and discriminatory behaviour in the recreation sector locally and nationally. The impacts of these incidents on the psychological health and well-being of those affected are serious and are made worse by the lack of support available. In response to this, Recreation Nova Scotia (RNS), with funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage, worked with Wisdom2Action (W2A) to develop the Anti-Racism Charter. The Charter will provide unifying guidelines for the recreation sector to address and combat systemic racism within the sector.
