The World Leisure Centre of Excellence (WLCE) at Vancouver Island University is privileged to share its fifth volume of case studies, as part of the Innovative Leisure Practices series. The series aims to provide a forum for the exchange of innovative practices in leisure. Innovative practices are defined as any unique, modern or promising approaches, strategies, or techniques that have been used to address current issues, opportunities, or trends in leisure. Our publication aims to attract many types of authors for diverse audiences. Our objective is to attract contributions from faculty and students in leisure-related academic programs internationally. It is our working assumption that scholars and scholarship can benefit from having current examples that showcase how researchers and practitioners are approaching common issues, opportunities, and trends. We also aim to create a platform for scholars and practitioners to share their innovative practices and opportunities to gain insight from research undertaken in diverse applied leisure contexts.
