INTRODUCTION

The state of Community Sport and Recreation in Canada

All levels of governments in Canada, federal, provincial, territories and municipal are involved in Community Sport and Recreation. Jointly they are the predominant stakeholders developers and owners of most community sport and recreational physical infrastructure and facilities.

Owners of Sport Recreation Facilities in Canada: Municipalities schools and universities, are the main developers owners and providers of almost all community sport and recreational facilities, parks and infrastructures across Canada.

Business of the Private Sector: The Private Sector is focused on developing and operating retail leisure facilities such as fitness clubs, gymnastics and golf facilities. Canlan appears to be the only major private sector listed company whose business model is to build and operates hockey and ice sport facilities in Canada and the US. www.icesports.com

Canada’s National Sport: Hockey is Canada’s national sport. Most major hockey rinks are owned by municipalities. A few major hockey and football facilities suitable for national and international games are owned by the private sector. The exception appears to be Canlan Ice Sport Corporation.

The Role of Volunteers in Community Sport and Recreation in Canada: Community sport and recreation in Canada is largely supported by Canadian communities themselves, relying substantially on volunteers (unpaid) coaches instructors trainers and managers.

Further:

  •  Sport and recreation organizations make up 21 percent of Canada’s nonprofit sector but engage 28 percent (5.3 million) of all volunteers – more than any other sector.
  • 1.8 million Canadians coach amateur sport while 800,000 participate as amateur sport referees or officials. On average, sport and recreation organizations receive only 12 percent of their funding from governments.
  • 73 percent of community sport organizations have no paid employees at all.

Canadian Governments Subsidies: All three governments provide a variety of annual subsidies to players to help pay membership fees, sometimes for equipment (City of Ottawa $250/child) mostly to children from economically disadvantage families and the disabled.

Canadian Governments Grants: The federal and provincial governments provide annual grants to families by way of income tax deduction for each child under the age of 16. The federal government allows annual deduction of $1000/child and Canadian Provinces and Territories (indigenous people) allow matching annual deduction of $500/child/year.

Canadian Business Participation: Canadian banks and financial institutions and Corporate Canada including all sizes of companies, are actively involved in supporting and sponsoring a large variety of sports and sport events and programs dealing with thousands of economically disadvantage and disabled kids across Canada.

The Business of Sport Organizations in Canada

There are 33,650 community sport and recreation Organizations in Canada. The majority are not-for-profit organizations. Almost all are actively engaged in the coaching and training of sports and recreational activities and events.

It would appear that almost all Canadian organizations are of not-for-profit formed for the purpose of qualifying to use, sports and recreation facilities and infrastructure belonging to municipalities, provinces and territories, schools colleges and universities. Other incentives they are seeking is to be allowed to receive donations, government grants and players’ subsidies.

The following are highlights of the business model of most not-for-profit sport and recreation organizations in Canada:

  1. Annually they receive approximately $400 million plus in direct financial supports and grants from federal, provincial, territories and municipal government
  2. They generate revenues from a variety of seasonal membership fees and casual players rates commensurate with private sector commercial business fees and rates.
  3. More than 85% of employees working for organizations (coaches, trainers, managers) are volunteers and are not paid for their services
  4. They lease existing community sports and recreation facilities mostly from municipalities, provincial parks, schools and universities.
  5. They enjoy non-commercial rental consideration for the use of sport and recreation  facilities
  6. They do not pay for maintenance of the sport and recreation facilities they are using.
  7. They maintain regular business offices and operations
  8. The executives and staff are paid (almost) regular commercial level salaries and benefits for their services

The Market Value of Community Sport In Canada

Community Sport and Recreation is a booming business in Canada. Revenues for the year 2011 were in access of $ 65 billion and are projected to continue rising at the healthy rate of 6%-8% annually.

Last year, Canadian spend more than $ 37 billion on sport clothes and equipment and more than $1.1 billion on transportation and other expenses related to sport.

Parks Ontario and other reliable sources reported that in 2010 Canadian families (1.4 million) paid on average $4,185/family/year not including grants, for sport and recreation.

The City of Ottawa reported its costs a staggering $95/year per taxpayer for maintenance of its sports and recreational infrastructure and facilities.

More than 290,000 Canadian are employed or working in a Community Sport and Recreation program. The business prospect for Community Sport, Recreation, Leisure and Wellness in Canada is very promising indeed.

 

Community Sport and Health Cost in Canada

The state of the health of the nation particularly our youth, is in jeopardy. Recently True Sport put out very disturbing statistics. See Backgrounders. Here is a sample:

  1.  51 percent of Canadians are physically inactive. Physical inactivity is the most widespread risk factor for heart disease and, after smoking, the greatest contributor to death and disability
  2. 25 percent of adult Canadians and almost 10 percent of children aged 7-13 are currently at risk of disability, disease and premature death because they are obese.
  3. Between 2003 and 2006, the number of obese children and youth in Canada increased a further 35.7 percent. Physical inactivity is one cause of this obesity.
  4. 91 percent of Canadian children and youth are not meeting Canada’s physical activity guidelines for

It also is very costly. In 2004, it cost Canadians $1.6 billion direct and $3.7 billion indirect costs.

Health Ontario, reported actual saving of $1.1 billion for the year 2010 from health care cost on account of Ontarians’ increasing their participation in sports and recreation.

Under severe budgetary constraint and large forecasted deficit, Health Ontario announced plans to adapt aggressive measures focusing on intensifying efforts through all channels to urge and interest Ontarians of all ages, to participate in sport or some physical activity. Health Ontario is aiming to reduce health care cost by $3-$5 billion/year by 2015.

The Federal and all provincial governments are following similar policies and examples. It is clear that the business prospect for Community Sport, Recreation, Leisure and Wellness in Canada is strong with longterm sustainability features.

Community Sport Canada Difficulties and Opportunities

Sport is woven into the very fabric of every community in Canada. One out of every 4 adults and one out of two children actively participate in sport, while over 5.3 million Canadians volunteer(no pay) as coaches, officials, and organizers.

Yet, according to True Sport and Parks Ontario and Community Sport Canada is under severe pressure on account of the following reasons:

  1.  Canadian governments both federal and provincial are labouring under mountains of debt, high unemployment and very challenging budgetary deficits. The ability to make needed modern and bold investments in sport and recreational facilities is severely limited. Ontario alone needs more than $5 billion just to upgrade existing aging sports and recreation infrastructures and facilities..
  2. The Private Sector interest orientation and preference is to keep utilizing, by way of a net lease arrangement, rental of sport and recreation facilities and related infrastructures built, owned and maintained by the three levels of governments, using taxpayer’s
  3. Our research and analysis would indicate that the present substantial revenue streams sports and recreation are generating from membership fees, coaching, training, and sponsorship has already reached considerable sustainable commercial values of interest to Family Nature Parcs and its development program.
  4. Our research also identified several areas of commercial promise to further generate additional substantial revenues from other sport related activities, ticket sales, advertising, online sale of sport supplies and equipments, clothes and shoes, on site food and beverage and other services.
  5. We are projecting conservatively, a strong net profit of not less than 7.5% in first year of operation with this profit increasing to 23% by the end of year three.

Sport Contribution to Tourism Travel the Economy 

Canada hosts over 250,000 sport events annually ranging from professional events to multi-sport amateur games to local tournaments. All of these provide economic benefits in the form of visitor spending on accommodation, food and drink, entertainment, and gifts/souvenirs.

In 2006, travel surveys showed that 4.17 million or 30.1 percent of all overnight person-trips from the United States to Canada included participation in sport or outdoor activity.

Also in 2006, 1.15 million or 27 percent of all international trips to Canada (excluding those from the US) included participation in sport or outdoor activity.

According to the House of Commons Sub-Committee on the Study of Sport in Canada, sport accounted for an estimated $4 billion in tourism expenditures in 1997, attracting tourists to all regions of Canada and increasing our visibility and reputation in the world.

Companies seeking new investment locations are also increasingly sensitive to quality of life as an important factor in attracting and retaining the highly skilled employees they need. By investing in sport and recreation green space, facilities and services that appeal to these workers, communities can increase their attractiveness to companies seeking to employ them.

Why Team Building Is Essential To Our Business!

Sport is woven into the very fabric of every community in Canada. One out of every 4 adults and one out of two children actively participate in sport, while over 5.3 million Canadians volunteer as coaches, officials, and organizers. Yet, according to True Sport, Community Sport in Canada is “under pressure” on account of the following factors:

  1. 1. 71% of Canadians believe high cost is a major barrier to community sport participation, that sport participation rates, peak at age 10 to 13, then decline steadily with age,
  2. The main serious issues facing community sport are:
    1. focus on winning competition at all costs (16%),
    2. parental over-involvement (10%)/ under-involvement (7%),
    3. poor coaching/leadership (6%),
    4. intolerance/racism (29%),
    5. lack of fair play (21%),

The challenge is what we, can objectively do to make sport more fair, more affordable, fun and more joyful to participate in.

We believe that in building teams using informed and enlightened, individual, screening and evaluations and matching participants into purpose structured teams of sports, games, leisure,camping and recreational activities, into the desired team structures, could stem underlying emotions and result in harmonizing relations between all participants including coaches and trainers.

The Team Building technology we are planning is certainly a very powerful tool, which will, intelligently, help us plan, structure and match, in real time, individual participants and players to their favourite sport/game/camping activities, that is most suitable to their individual circumstances which will include age, sex, sport level, interest and other personal characteristics designed to guide equitable, cohesive team choices, with our coaches trainers and team managers.

Our Team Building technology is a significant management administrative and marketing tool that will allow the Company to deal intentionally to resolve most of current Pressure Issues of community sport. Most significant is our ability to plan and to execute strategic milestone and products for business promotions and maximization of sustainable revenue streams.
