A Firm Foundation
The existence of the Council, its mission and its corporate philosophy are founded upon the principles that leisure activity:
  • Is recognized as a fundamental right according to the 1948 United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, entrenching such rights as are recognized in Quebec and the rest of Canada;
  • Is recognized as a social service (1974) falling under provincial jurisdiction (1978), the principles of which were established in the 1987 National Declaration on Leisure Activity;
  • Is necessary to maintain and enhance our quality of life, for individual and community development, and to improve our society as a whole.
