Alberta Recreation & Parks Labour Market Project
Home Resources Research
The Alberta Recreation and Parks Industry Labour Market Project is the first stakeholder led report in nearly fifteen years! A lot has transpired since then with the growth and emergence of new trends, economic downturns and most recently COVID-19. From an industry perspective, the recreation and parks industry is found within multiple industries as categorized by the Alberta Government and the Canadian Government. This project is an initial step to categorize the Alberta recreation and parks industry from the stakeholder’s perspective.
Furthermore, this project took into account the geographical and community size differences for the labour market between urban, rural, remote, and indigenous communities. An aquatics coordinator in a city can be vastly different than an aquatics coordinator in a rural town. This project provides data to make informed decisions for those currently in the workforce, students looking to be in the industry or for organizations making labour decisions for their recreation and/or park departments.

The Alberta Recreation & Parks Association would like to acknowledge the First Nations, the Métis, and all of the people across Alberta who share a history and a deep connection with this land. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
