Link to Leisure

“Leisure” is defined as involvement in activities that we do in our discretionary recreational time, before or after work or other duties. For children and youth, these voluntary activities typically include active-physical activities, social, skill-based, self-improvement or other recreational activities.

Through participation in leisure activities, children practice skill competencies, develop their own personal identity, and peer relationships and friendships are fostered. Engagement in leisure activities promotes community integration and is important for physical and mental health and well-being.

LINK to Leisure is a space to share knowledge and resources and also exchange ideas about promoting participation in leisure activities for children and youth with disabilities in Canada.
