The 1980's were high water mark years for policy development in Alberta Recreation and Parks.
In preparation for the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, Alberta had a comprehensive Sport Plan to identify and prepare athletes for the Games. The goal was to have 20% of the Canadian Team made up of Alberta athletes.
In addition Alberta went through a comprehensive planning process to put in place a Recreation Policy.
The following three documents were found in my archives.
