Call to Action # 90: Sports and Reconciliation (87-91)

Funding for sport for social development

May 31, 2019

Budget 2018: $47.5M over 5 yrs + $9.5 annually
Funding is to expand the use of sport for social development in more than 300 Indigenous communities. Those needs form the specific targeted social outcomes of the SSDIC component: 

  • improved health, education, and employability; and
  • the reduction of at-risk behaviour. 

The SSDIC component is divided into 2 streams:

  • Stream 1 – This stream is reserved for established provincial/territorial Aboriginal sport bodies.
  • Stream 2 – This stream is open to Indigenous governments, Indigenous communities and other not-for-profit Indigenous and non‑Indigenous delivery organizations collaborating with an Indigenous organization(s).
