More leisure time…

…earlier retirements? To some, this was the future as seen through the lenses of the mid 1990’s.

With the Robot Master and his minions raising the possibility of changing the age at which one qualifies for OAS from 65 to 67, I cannot help but think of a course that I took while completing my M.Sc at U of G on “Leisure Management Planning”. It was based on the assumption that we were destined for EARLIER retirements and MORE leisure time.

What happened, Prof. Reid?

Any USRPDers want to weigh in?

    Of course I need to weigh in!! Same experience with me years ago. I took Recreation Leadership at Humber College in Toronto in the late 80’s and a general theme throughout the program was that we were going to be in huge demand over the next decades as the hours worked per week would go down and everyone would be looking to fill this extra time with coordinated leisure activities! Guess they missed that one eh?
