Residents in rural communities experience a unique environment and a distinct lived experience that is often well connected to the rural landscape. In addition, that outdoor experience is tightly woven into cultural, heritage and historical significance. Planning and development strategies – which include Parks and Recreation Master Plans – help rural municipalities create a healthier community and in turn a healthier population.

The Nation Municipality worked with the consulting group PRC Solutions to develop The Nation Municipality’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan, which sets out a vision, strategic objectives and key initiatives for the period 2020-2034. The master plan will serve as a policy framework to manage and sustain parks, recreation programs and facilities. It will guide decision-making for future capital and operational initiatives.

Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Status: currently in the Request for Proposal phase.

The Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) inspections for The Nation Municipality’s community centres were completed in January 2021 by McIntosh Perry and the reports were received at the end of March 2021.

Based on the building inspections, repairs were prioritized; costs for these repairs and replacement were provided for each building. A Facility Condition Index (FCI) is then calculated and the condition of the building is rated based on the FCI score.

The community centres received the following FCI scores:

  • St-Isidore Recreation Centre: 1.6% good condition
  • Fournier Community Centre: 2.6% good condition
  • Caledonia Community Centre: 6.1% fair condition
  • St-Albert Community Centre: 10.3% poor condition

For more information, please see the individual reports:

  • St-Isidore Recreation Centre
  • Fournier Community Centre
  • Caledonia Community Centre
  • St-Albert Community Centre

This study aimed to determine the overall effectiveness of the Recreation Department; determine if the quality of services meets the needs of the citizens; and determine if there are opportunities for efficiencies.

The Nation Municipality Evaluation of the Recreation, final report and findings, were presented by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton to Council and approved on October 12th, 2016.
