Parks & Recreation wants your program proposal ideas


It's the time of year when the City of Nanaimo Parks and Recreation programming staff are busy planning for the spring and summer seasons. And, as always, proposals from the community are not only welcomed, but sought after. If you have a skill or talent for instructing or leading an activity that you think members of the community would be interested in, please submit a program proposal.

Programs include sports, dance, music, art, cooking and so much more. Applicants are encouraged to read the current Activity Guide thoroughly to make sure any proposed programs are different in some way from what is currently being offered. The deadline for submissions for the 2017 Spring and Summer Activity Guide is November 10, 2016.

Strategic Link: Social Equity and Cultural Vitality pillars by enhancing diverse, inclusive programming in the Activity Guide.
