SIRC at the 2017 Sport for Life Canadian Summit
Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 08:08
The Sport for Life (S4L) Canadian Summit will be taking place from January 24-26, 2017 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel in Gatineau-Ottawa and brings together leaders to enhance the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. The 2017 Summit will feature more than 70 sessions from upwards of 100 presenters. The theme for this year’s summit revolves around “Nurturing Excellence” delivered through a variety of presentation streams including: Excellence for all, System excellence, Excellence for life, Technology contributing to excellence, Nurturing excellence in sport development, Nurturing excellence in high performance sport, and a French stream focusing on excellence.
“The term “excellence”, however applied, can be described as achieving outstanding results. Excellence can be realized in any number of ways – through personal achievement, organizational or system effectiveness, or by changing the culture of an entire nation for the better.
The concept of nurturing excellence suggests that an environment can be created in which excellence can flourish, both in quality and scale, through the intentional actions of an individual or group.” -S4L Canadian Summit
