Similarly, evidence of agenda setting, policy formulation, and decision making for the NWTRPA can be seen in the NWTRPA's goals.
The evidence of policy implementation and policy evaluation can be seen in the NWTRPA's Elders in Motion program.
While some formulated policies in the NWT focus on providing PA opportunities to older adults, encouraging older adults to adopt and sustain active lifestyles, and investing in sport and recreation for older adults (NWTRPA, 2013; NWT Sport and Recreation Council, 2013, 2014; NWT Seniors' Society, 2014), there are still very few programs or opportunities for PA for older adults.
The NWTRPA's Elders in Motion program, which the NWT Sport and Recreation Council supports financially, and sending a team to the Canada 55+ Games are significant contributions to encouraging a greater number of older adults to be active; however, two initiatives do not provide much choice of activities for older adults and are not enough to facilitate the successful aging of the older adult population in the NWT, especially in light of this population's growth.
