Inclusive Recreation

Inclusive recreation is an important part of a healthy and interesting lifestyle that provides opportunities to pursue interests, learn new skills and make friends.

Alberta communities offer a broad array of recreational activities for children and adults, from soccer and baseball, dance lessons, music and art programs, to summer camps. The list is large, and many families take advantage of these opportunities. However, what seems ordinary for most individuals and parents is not typical for those who have a family member with disabilities. Individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families need a welcoming community open to their participation in community sport and recreation opportunities.

Inclusion Alberta partners with community recreation providers to build their capacity to welcome and include children or adults with intellectual disabilities. Community groups or organizations can make a huge difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities by letting individuals and families know all are welcome.

Our team is available to help individuals and families explore their interests and to assist organizations, groups, schools or municipalities become more inclusive and able to accommodate children and adults with disabilities, ensuring success for everyone.
