Leisure for Canadians (2nd ed.) begins by offering definitions for leisure, recreation, and play and their respective roles in our society. Two themes recur throughout the book: the role of theory in helping us understand sport and leisure dynamics, and politics and power.

This book also describes how Canadians spend their spare time and explores the diversity within the Canadian social landscape. Moreover, it examines traditional approaches to leisure delivery and strategies for leisure delivery, as well as administrative topics such as program planning issues, human resource development, financing, and marketing efforts.

In addition to teaching at the higher education level, the editors have researched both participants in and providers of leisure service delivery.
