Are a high priority for action within sport in Ontario II. Require collective action – cannot/should not be done by a single organization or agency III. Are realistic and manageable and with focused effort can be implemented within three years Step 5Discuss your selected items until they are clear and can be described and written on the attached worksheet as: a. An outcome statement which identifies clearly what change we expect to see in whom, within three years b. A clear description of what the initiative is Step 6Move on to the next Pillar of the Ontario Sport Action Plan
