Support needed – help unlock the power of CPRA’s new infrastructure database

April 19, 2023 09:15 | Anonymous

CPRA has launched the Canadian Parks, Recreation and Sport Infrastructure Database, the first database specifically designed for the recreation and parks sector. Recreation Manitoba members can use this database by both entering and accessing essential facility and demographic data to better understand and convey how your facilities contribute to the health and wellbeing of your communities.

CPRA is looking for Recreation Manitoba member communities to support the project. They need your help to:

  • Enter the location and basic information about your community’s facilities in the database;
  • If your facilities are already in the database, ensure the location and information entered is correct.

Exciting Benefits of the Canadian Parks, Recreation and Sport Infrastructure Database:

  • The Database has been pre-populated with some facility information made available through Statistics Canada.
  • The simple user interface lets you easily update existing facilities and add new ones.
  • You can quickly access information on key health indicators using built-in demographic data.
  • A movement data layer provides you a picture of how people are using your outdoor parks and facilities hour-by-hour.
  • A dashboard allows you to compare facility provision levels within your community or with communities of a similar size and profile.
  • The database can be used as an indispensable tool for reports to council, budget and project planning, and feasibility studies.
  • CPRA can utilize the data to illustrate the benefits of parks and recreation and advocate for additional support from the federal government on your behalf.
