Welcome to ParaSport Ontario. As Board Chair I support the belief that everyone should have access to sport, whether competitive or recreational, and an active lifestyle. I’ve witnessed the transformative power of sport in individuals with disabilities and believe that sport promotes discipline, confidence, a sense of accomplishment and belonging, and ultimately a better quality of life.

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.
