Training Program


The Recreation North Training Program based on thirteen competencies essential for leading community recreation. If you live in Yukon, NWT or Nunavut and work (or would like to work or volunteer) in recreation, this Program is for you. 

Not sure where to start? Try our Recreation Leadership Self Assessment (in English, French or Inuktituk) to see where your strengths lie and to identify opportunities for growth and learning.

Choose to:

    1. Register for one or several learning events. 
    2. Earn a Certificate in Northern Recreation Leadership and/or a Certificate in Northern Recreation Management upon completing a series of learning events. (We recommend completing the leadership certificate first.)
    3. Obtain Professional Development Certification with the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association through our pathway. (The management certificate is a prerequisite for this certification.)
