Recreation

The Recreation Department exists to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of the community of Kahnawà:ke. Through subsidizing organized recreation, we lower barriers to participation, ensuring the physical and mental health of our people.  Through developing and maintaining parks, playgrounds and recreational fields we ensure safe spaces for exercise, play and leisure for current and future generations during all phases of their life.

Areas of Activity:
Recreation: sports, arts, fitness, leisure, hobbies, athletics, parks, playgrounds.

Recreation is able to achieve great things for our youth through creativity, ingenuity and partnerships with the private sector and appreciate the generosity of donors and volunteers who believe in our vision to make the community a better, safer and healthier place. 

Kahnawà:ke Youth Recreation Fund
The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke allocated $250,000 to the Kahnawà:ke Youth Recreation Fund in 2019-2020 to 10 Youth Recreation Organizations.  This fund was created to:

  • Ensure that the youth of Kahnawà:ke have access to organized recreation that is safe, challenging and inclusive;
  • Increase the capacity of Youth Recreation Organizations through ensuring the adoption of standards of operation;
  • Promote participation and growth of our Youth Recreation Organizations by alleviating expenses; and
  • Cover program shortfalls in order to lower registration costs and increase participation.

Organizations must apply annually for their funding and meet the criteria for selection

Parks Kahnawà:ke
Through strategic planning the Kahnawà:ke Parks and Recreational Spaces Strategy is being developed to ensure that the community is full of beautiful art, safe playgrounds, a multitude of athletic courts and fields, as well as various public relaxation spots in the community to enjoy nature.

Kahnawà:ke Playground Safety Program
Each spring a safety audit of all 11 playgrounds in the community is conducted by an employee certified by the Canadian Playground Safety Institute.  All unsafe elements are documented and addressed.
Our playgrounds are inspected visually by employees who perform routine maintenance.  Any safety issues or complaints brought forward are addressed by the GM of Recreation.
