The Sport Information Resource Centre

In 2005, as part of the Sport Canada Research Initiative (SCRI), Sport Canada launched a joint initiative with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) called the Sport Participation Research Initiative (SPRI). Sport Canada is funding the initiative to better evidence the benefits of, and barriers to, quality sport participation with the aim of improving Canadian sport policy outcomes.

The 8th annual Sport Canada Research Initiative (SCRI) Conference will be held in Ottawa on October, 2014 at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata. The purpose of the SCRI conference is to facilitate connections between researchers, analysts and sport leaders in order to engage and share the practical applications of sport participation research within the sport community.

Conference features:

  • Presentation of recent complete research
  • Dynamic introductions and posters of research in progress
  • Interactive sessions

If you have an interest in sport participation in Canada and wish you share your expertise with others, this is your opportunity to make a difference. Be part of the discussion that drives change and evolution in sport policy and sport program development.

This year’s conference is hosted by the Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC) and we heartily welcome you to join us. Visit for more details.
