Tobacco Free Outdoor Recreation Properties Program

Recreation PEI is pleased to support Tobacco Free Outdoor Recreation Properties. Municipalities and organizations that have adopted tobacco free policy have receive provincial signs to use on their sport fields and playgrounds this season. This will empower recreational users to ask people using tobacco to respect the signs. Thanks to the Government of PEI Department of Health and Wellness, and the “Smokers Help Line” for financial contributions to this signage program.

President of Recreation PEI,  Andrew Avery comments: “ Recreation PEI supports healthy living, so we are pleased to lead the tobacco free facilities initiative in the province. PEI is now a leader in Canada with tobacco free spaces.”

Beth Grant, Executive Director of Recreation PEI, comments, “This project promotes community wellness and forward thinking attitudes in PEI communities; Recreation PEI is proud to have shared this program with our P/T counterparts at the national tables of the Canadian Recreation Facilities Council and Canadian Parks and Recreation Association.”

Frank Morrison, Manager of the Tobacco Free Outdoor Recreation Facility Project, visits municipalities and explains the benefits of having tobacco free outdoor recreation facilities, and how to implement policy through presentations to managing bodies (Boards, Councils, etc.). Frank states, “ I am very pleased with the interest and commitment of communities across the Island, in addition to protecting people form from second hand smoke, it is a major benefit to our environment”

Recreation PEI is dedicated to promoting, coordinating and encouraging all aspects of recreation, physical activity and facility management. We would like to invite municipalities to book a presentation, on establishing tobacco free outdoor facilities. Please contact Frank Morrison at 902-672-2567
