RPAN’s Strategic Plan: 2020-2024

The new 2020-2024 Strategic Plan is reflective of current trends that impact the Nunavut Recreation Sector, and focuses on identifying “how” RPAN will achieve goals and objectives to support and further enhance the recreation system and opportunity for Nunavummiut.

The 2020-2024 Strategic Plan is aligned when possible with the National Recreation Framework and the Sivumut Abluqta Government of Nunavut guiding vision document, which supports the RPAN efforts and resolution that “By stepping forward together with strong resolve, we are providing Nunavummiut with a path towards achieving their aspirations and securing a better future for us all.’
