REACHING EACH AND EVERY ONE: A COMMUNITY SPORT INTERVENTION

OVERVIEW

The application period is now closed.

The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) was successful in applying for Government of Canada funding via the Community Sport for All Initiative. In alignment with its mandate to provide publicly accessible community sport and recreation opportunities to all Canadians, this new funding will allow CPRA to support community-led projects that aim to remove barriers and increase participation rates in recreation for underrepresented groups, in particular, Black, Indigenous, racially diverse, 2SLGBTQQIA+, low-income and newcomer populations, as well as people living with disabilities.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

Entitled Reaching Each and Every One: A Community Sport Intervention, the overarching goal of this project is to support the prompt initiation of community level interventions on programs, events, and/or policy changes that remove barriers and increase sport access, participation and retention rates for equity deserving groups, in particular Black, Indigenous, racially diverse, 2SLGBTQQIA+, low-income and newcomer populations, as well as people living with disabilities. Programs supported by this funding need not be exclusionary, and may be open to all populations and abilities.

The specific objectives are to increase the participation and/or retention of equity deserving groups in recreational sport in Canada by:

  • Supporting the implementation of targeted community level interventions through programs, events, practices and/or policy changes which have the potential to increase the participation and/or retention of equity deserving groups in recreational sport in Canada via this funding opportunity;
  • Supporting knowledge sharing and/or the development of tools and resources aimed at increasing the participation and/or retention of equity deserving groups in recreational sport in Canada;
  • Supporting innovative projects to explore responses to known barriers to the participation and/or retention of underrepresented groups in recreational sport in Canada;
  • Supporting the evaluation of the impact of these interventions so that evidence can be collected and successes potentially adopted in other communities.

Priority populations for this Initiative are equity deserving groups, in particular Black, Indigenous, racially diverse, 2SLGBTQQIA+, low-income and newcomer populations, as well as people living with disabilities.
