SIRC would like to acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through Sport Canada and the Department of Canadian Heritage.
SIRC is the leading sport knowledge and communication centre.
SIRC empowers sport organizations and individuals by sharing credible and evidence based knowledge using relevant and innovative communication channels.
While the word “unprecedented” perhaps best defined 2020, the global COVID-19 pandemic continued to take centre stage in 2021 and early 2022. Rapidly evolving return to play protocols, vaccination policies, and the return of major games kept sport organizations at all levels busy with many Canadians eager to return to organized sport and competition.
As Canada continues down the path of pandemic recovery, SIRC is here, supporting the sector, every step of the way.
2020 began like no other with the arrival of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the country in lock down. With everyone working from home, travel halted, and sport events and activities cancelled, the critical role that SIRC plays to inform and unite the sector was amplified. Collaborating with sport partners and the Board, SIRC’s pandemic protocol helped to guide the unchartered waters ahead.
