Millions of Canadians participate in organized sport … far more don’t. Why? We have programs to improve the quality and relevance for targeted groups, initiatives to engage audiences that have proven to have barriers (e.g. girls & women, low-income families, racialized, rural & remote, indigenous, etc.), a mountain of research that supports the many benefits, policies that encourage and often mandate inclusive participation, and on, and on, and on. But are our systems, at their core, inequitable?
Over the coming months, we will dive into these issues and explore this question: What would it look like if our sport system reflected the breadth and depth of Canada’s diversity?
We need your voice.
