Abstract
"Everybody deserves a fair chance to play and grow. But not all kids get the chance. For low-income families, food, clothing and shelter come first. For some, recreation may seem like an unreachable luxury; for others it may seem like a frivolous expense....[the toolkit] was developed as part of the CPRA national initiative to enhance the lives of Canadian children in low-income families through increased access to recreation."
