event in the Race to Santiago – 2023 Parapan Am Games! As one of only four top Level 1 events in the calendar, the Canada Para Badminton International will feature the best para badminton athletes from across the world.

Last year in 2022, the event was a huge success due to the amazing support from Ottawa Tourism, the University of Ottawa and the many volunteers who gave their time during the competition. “I am proud that Badminton Canada and the City of Ottawa was selected by the Badminton World Federation to
host the 2023 YONEX Canada Para-Badminton International” stated Executive Director, Jordan Bridal. “Hosting the highest level of para badminton offered in the world goes with our mission of being a leading sport for inclusivity and fair play. With over 200 athletes set to be in attendance, we look forward to welcoming all for another fantastic event this summer!”

Ottawa Tourism is again a driving force behind the delivery of the event and Badminton Canada is thankful for their generous and professional assistance with hosting. “Ottawa Tourism is very pleased to see such an impressive event return to our city,” said Michael Crockatt, President and CEO of Ottawa
Tourism, “and we are proud partners in welcoming international athletes, coaching staff, families, and fans to our beautiful city.”

This is a FREE event for spectators! Come out and show your support for these amazing athletes as we welcome the return of international para badminton to Canada at the University of Ottawa’s Montpetit Hall, June 14th-18th, 2023!

R.I.S.E. Academy Hockey Tournament and Summit

April 21, 22 & 23, 2023

Carleton University Ice House

Last year R.I.S.E. held its first Hockey Tournament with the theme of inclusivity.  We had the opportunity to have 65 youth and their parents engage in great hockey and meaningful conversation about the need for change in the sport that we love.  This year we are growing the event into a three day tournament with the goal of attracting 24 teams, approximately 400 youth and their parents as well as hosting a 1 day summit focused on making hockey more inclusive for all.  During the one day summit many stakeholders will come together that include players, parents, coaches, hockey executives, and the community where they will engage in hockey, fun, dialogue and a Call to Action.


Given hockey’s 2017 Declaration of Principles, the current and ongoing issues of maltreatment by players, coaches as well as spectators, and the long overdue need for positive culture change for the survival of the sport, the theme for the Hockey Summit is “Changing The Hockey Culture: The Challenge And The Opportunity”.
