Sport for Life Canadian Summit
Event Date: Jan. 23, 2018 to Jan. 25, 2018
The Sport for Life Canadian Summit brings together leaders who work to enhance the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. Sport for Life recognizes that quality sport and physical literacy offer rich benefits to Canadian society through improved health, stronger communities, higher sporting achievement, and stronger national identity. By improving sport, Sport for Life aims to improve the lives of all Canadians.
The 2018 Sport for Life Canadian Summit will take place January 23 - 25 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy Hotel, in Gatineau, QC, Canada.
The theme of this year’s Summit is “Working Together”. If we want to give participants in sport and physical activity the best possible chance to succeed, then we must ensure collaboration within the sport system and across the recreation, education and health sectors. Partnership and working agreement are needed at all stages of development. Given multisport athletes are more likely to thrive later in their chosen sport, what are we doing to collaborate at the early stage? This year’s Summit seeks promising practices to share with the delegates. There are great examples of ‘Working Together’ so now let’s work together to share and utilize them to create systematic change.
