Sports And Reconciliation: Call To Action #89
In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released 94 calls to action in order to “redress the legacy of residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliation.”
Five of those calls to action related to Sports And Reconciliation.
Call to action #89 reads:
We call upon the federal government to amend the Physical Activity and Sport Act to support reconciliation by ensuring that policies to promote physical activity as a fundamental element of health and well-being, reduce barriers to sports participation, increase the pursuit of excellence in sport, and build capacity in the Canadian sport system, are inclusive of Aboriginal peoples.
