Canadian Disability Participation Project
Our goal is to develop, test and implement evidence-based best practices to increase the number of people with disabilities who participate in sport and exercise, and to improve the quality of their participation experiences. These practices might be directed toward coaches, parents, sport and exercise program administrators, facility managers, or individuals looking to become more physically active.
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.
