ASSESSMENT OF DEMOGRAPHIC & COMMUNITY DATA
Over the past 10 years, Saskatchewan has experienced a significant demographic shift in its population - and all indications show that this trend will continue. Two major trends are contributing to a more culturally diverse population: the continued growth of the First Nations and Metis youth demographic and increased immigration. Non-profit organizations need to ensure they offer inclusive programs and services - those that will engage the increasingly diverse members, participants, volunteers and audiences for years to come.
In 2013, the Tri-Global organizations - Sask Sport, SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association - contracted McNair Business Development to collect data that would provide the sport, culture and recreation sectors with current and relevant information that would help in assessing Saskatchewan's evolving demographics. The report contains demographic data (age, gender, income, education levels, immigration numbers, backgrounds and First Nations and Métis heritage), expressed by community, and by Sport, Culture and Recreation District. It is hoped that this report will help inform leaders with up-to-date information that will assist them with issues related to participation, accessibility and capacity.
