Call to Action # 90

We call upon the federal government to ensure that national sports policies, programs, and initiatives are inclusive of Aboriginal peoples, including, but not limited to, establishing: 

  1. In collaboration with provincial and territorial governments, stable funding for, and access to, community sports programs that reflect the diverse cultures and traditional sporting activities of Aboriginal peoples. 
  2. An elite athlete development program for Aboriginal athletes.
  3. Programs for coaches, trainers, and sports officials that are culturally relevant for Aboriginal peoples.
  4. Anti-racism awareness and training programs.

Why “In Progress?”

Federal Government has committed ongoing funding through Budget 2017 ($18.9M over 5 years + $3.5M ongoing after that) and Budget 2018 invested $47.5 over 5 years + $9.5M ongoing after that.

Multiple initiatives underway at various provincial/territory sports bodies.
