“Recreation Your Way is a program that has been designed and delivered by the Inclusive Recreation Committee of Recreation New Brunswick/Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability NB. It is a one-day event for people with disabilities, their friends and families, to participate in various recreation, sports and leisure activities. During the event, activities on various inclusive recreation activities, some with specialized equipment, are offered. These sessions allow registrants with disabilities, and their friends and family, to try new activities and/or find new ways to participate in favourite activities from the past. This resource guide is meant as an educational tool to help plan, promote and deliver a Recreation Your Way event in communities.”
