This initiative is a result of many years of hard work in developing opportunities to advise, educate and partner with all of the three governments that our Mi'kmaw people currently work with to develop long term, sustainable opportunities for our people.

Sports & Recreation has been difficult to try to fit into any one of the nine (9) areas that the Tripartite Forum officially recognizes because Sports & Recreation covers many areas and positively affects these areas as it works to create healthy, active lifestyles for children, youth and all community members in general by promoting quality living.

By doing this, there are a number of preventative measures that the organization promotes involving such things as alcohol & drug prevention, promotion of education and staying in school, promotion of self esteem for children and youth, etc...

We understand that by promoting healthy lifestyles to our youth and giving them an opportunity to excel through quality athletic programming, we are giving them an opportunity to grow and learn about team work, fair play, cohesiveness, partnering together to work towards goals and so on.

Through the means of the three governments working together to develop a mandate to support the growth of programs through ongoing financial support, representatives from these three governments are working together with us to develop long term opportunities for our people, especially our youth.
