Sport Canada Innovation Initiative

on .

The Gender Equity, Inclusion and Innovation Unit at Sport Canada needs your help to reach a larger audience and spread the word on our newest initiative that was just launched: The Innovation Initiative! For 2019-2020, Sport Canada is looking for Canadian organizations that are interested in testing new ways to address sport participation issues for the following populations:

  • · women and girls;
  • · LGBTQ2+ communities;
  • · persons with disabilities; and
  • · newcomers to Canada (< 5 years).

The Innovation Initiative will provide funding to eligible organizations who are committed to improve sport participation experiences among children, youth, adults, seniors, coaches, officials, program leaders, volunteers, etc. through the testing of innovative programming.

Join Sport Canada in eliminating barriers to participation in sport and encourage your followers to submit their innovative ideas to Sport Canada! For more information, please visit the Innovation Initiative web page:
