  6. HeritageWoods Secondary (Picture of Heritage Woods Secondary taken from SD43 website) Address: 1300 David Ave, Port Moody, BC V3H 5K6 Heritage Woods Secondary is a part of the public sector as it is a public school where students grades 9-12 go to learn. Since it is a high school, it’s free for students to attend. The money which the school makes comes from taxpayers and as Lunn states “the financial base of the public sector comes from taxpayers” (pp 3, 2020).
  7. Heritage Woods Secondary Heritage Woods Secondary School is a public high school in Port Moody which offers a physical education connection. High schools teach physical education to their students. Students do workouts in P.E., play games, and learn about how to be physically active for life. Heritage woods is part of the public sector meaning all the money which they make comes from taxpayers. Public sectors get their financial base from tax revenue, (Lunn, 2020). All the money which Heritage Woods gets would be coming from taxpayers meaning the families don’t directly pay for schooling, instead the parents pay through their taxes.
  8. Port Moody Minor Hockey Address: 300 Ioco Road, Port Moody, BC V3H 2V7 It is a non-profit sector as most of the people are volunteers who spend their own time helping run the league making sure that the kids can play. All the money the league takes in goes back to paying league fees such as ice times, referees, and other fees. (Personal Photo of me with my grade 12 ice hockey team)
  9. Port Moody Minor Hockey offers a coaching connection to SPSC 2210. The minor hockey association is a volunteer/non-profit run association which ensures kids have a place to play hockey. All the money which is brought in comes from “donations, user fees & fundraising, and funding for kids from organizations such as Jumpstart” (Lunn, 2020, pp 9). It’s non-profit because any money they take in they put back into the league to pay for various expenses. The coaching connection comes from adults volunteering to coach the kids and teach them important life lessons about not just the game but everything. Without coaches, the league would be unable to run therefore resulting in tons of young athletes and kids being unable to play ice hockey. Port Moody Minor Hockey
  10. Volunteer Firefighters (Picture of firefighters taken from Facebook website) Address: 150 Newport Drive The volunteer firefighters fall under the volunteer sector as they volunteer their time to help the first responders put out fires and give back to our community. The firefighters aren’t being paid and any money that comes in goes back to helping get equipment for the fire station.
  11. Volunteer firefighters have a recreational and physical education connection to SPSC 2210. To become a volunteer firefighter there are multiple fitness tests they must pass. These fitness tests become harder and harder as they go. The physical education connection is they learn about how to get in good shape and how to keep their bodies healthy and strong. The recreational connection comes from being out in the community putting out fires and helping people. The nature of service is public good which allows them to generate enough profit from local government to cover costs (Lunn, 2020). They are out helping people and risking their lives in our community without getting anything back in return. Volunteer Firefighters

  15. Koko’s Koko’s is a commercial business which offers physical activity and recreation through running through jungle gyms and playing games with friends. It does cost money to access the facility but when inside is a very fun play place for young kids. “Commercial recreation is defined as recreation for which the consumer pays for and for which the supplier expects to make a profit” (Karlis, 2011, pp 79, as cited in Lunn, 2020, pp 6).
