About This Project

This document provides a compilation of terminology and concepts integral to outdoor play. The purpose is to be consistent in our use of terms and build a shared understanding of language used in dialogue on outdoor play across Canada. These are working definitions developed by Outdoor Play Canada founding members, the Lawson Foundation Outdoor Play Strategy cohort and a team of national and international advisors with expertise in play-based practice, policy and research.
