Ontario Blind Sports Association (OBSA) is dedicated to fostering opportunities for involvement in sports and providing the best possible provincial sport structure for the visually impaired. We design, coordinate and sanction programs, events and activities designed to stimulate the development of athletes of all levels in Ontario. As a Provincial Sport Organization (PSO), we are dedicated to athlete development as well as raising awareness about the unique benefits of participation in blind sports at the grassroots level.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
