Aboriginal Sport Circle – OTTAWA – The Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) Summit this past weekend in Whitehorse, YT played host to 80 participants from the Provincial/Territorial Aboriginal Sport Body, National Sport Organization, Multi Sport Organizations and key political representation from the Yukon Territories.

This was the first ever ASC Summit, a time to reflect on the past, discuss the current and join together to plan for the future of Aboriginal Sport in Canada. We have an opportunity to define our new relationships with a common desired outcome to move towards change.

As noted by Aboriginal Sport Circle President Alwyn Morris “ASC needs to develop Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) principles and be seen as the leader of the TRC education to the sport and physical activity community. The TRC will lead the way for new and valued relationship building”.

“We were honoured that the Aboriginal Sport Circle decided to hold their summit here in Yukon. We had a chance to showcase local First Nation sport and culture and to get everyone involved. The Summit was an opportunity to strengthen relationships and make connections, and I look forward to working with the Aboriginal Sport Circle to increase participation in sport and promote health and wellness in Yukon communities.”

– The Honourable John Streicker, Minister of Community Services

“I really appreciated the opportunity to attend the Aboriginal Sport Circle’s 2017 Summit. It was a great success! The Yukon hospitality was amazing and the ASC staff did a fantastic job in selecting very worthy presenters! Congratulations.”

– Mel Whitesell, Manitoba Aboriginal Sports & Recreation Council (MASRC)

“We all share the goal of a Canada made better through sport.  It was an inspiring and enlightening experience to listen to and learn from the leaders of Aboriginal Sport in Canada and to move to concrete solutions to connect more aboriginal youth to the power of sport.”

– David Patterson, Canada Games Council
