Who We Are
The Lakeland District for Sport, Culture and Recreation Inc. is a non-profit volunteer based organization. We exist to facilitate the development of sport, culture and recreation programs and services to the residents of our District. The Lakeland District for Sport Culture and Recreation came into being on April 1, 2008. This was a result of the amalgamation of the Zone 8 Sports Council, the North Central Regional Recreation Association and the North East Recreation and Parks Association. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and employ four full-time staff. Our head office is located in Prince Albert and we have a satellite office in the town of Naicam.
Creating, building and sustaining partnerships will be an integral part of what we do. Therefore, we look forward to hearing from all communities, schools and organizations within our District to find out how we can best serve your individual needs and requirements. We must all work together to ensure that our citizens have access to a wide variety of quality sport, culture and recreation programs and services.
