Home Awards & Scholarships ARPA Awards AABRD Legacy Award
This award recognizes the achievements of individuals, communities, and organizations that strive to advance integrated recreation opportunities for people with disabilities.
In 1972, the Alberta Advisory Board on Recreation for the Disabled (AABRD) was formed to act as a catalyst in the promotion of recreation services for people with disabilities. Twelve years later, the AABRD felt that it had fulfilled its primary objective and entrusted the selection and distribution of its awards and scholarships to the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association. Support for the AABRD Award is provided through a Legacy Fund, managed by Alberta Sport Connection.
Communities, community organizations, schools, health care facilities, or individuals in Alberta that have been instrumental to the development of a project, program, or facility contributing to recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities will be considered. Nominees must be current members of the Alberta Recreation & Parks Association.
Please note, nomination is closed.

We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
