History of S.A.R.P.

The Saskatchewan Recreation Society was founded in 1970 with 17 charter members. Originally SRS was formed as a branch of the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association as a development of a pattern established by the Recreation Institute of Canada., the national professional body at that time. In 1973, SRS achieved autonomy but maintains close working association with SPRA, its parent organization.

In 1995, SRS went through a massive re-organization that further defined its mandate. The culmination of this effort was a name change to the Saskatchewan Association of Recreation Professionals in 1997.
