Wheelchair basketball is a sport that is fast-paced, entertaining, and strategic. It's no surprise that it's one of the most popular Paralympic spectator sports. The sport is well-developed in Ontario, with various clubs and programs for youth and adults available throughout the province. Wheelchair basketball is a fully inclusive sport in Canada, with able-bodied athletes permitted to compete at the provincial level. Mixed-gender teams are also common among club teams.
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.
