Soccer is Canada's most played sport and is growing quickly in popularity for players with disabilities. It's a "beautiful game" for athletes with or without a disability. There are a variety of forms of the game for players with a disability, including those who are blind and visually impaired (5-a-side with a sound-making ball), participants who are deaf or hearing impaired, those with cerebral palsy (Football 7-a-side), those with learning disabilities, amputees and wheelchair athletes too.
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.
