Background:

 

The Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) is Canada’s national voice for Aboriginal sport, physical activity, and recreation bringing together the interests of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Established in 1995, the ASC was created through a national consensus-building process in response to the need for more accessible and equitable sport and recreation opportunities for Indigenous peoples. This mandate has expanded to include physical activity.

The ASC partners with Indigenous and mainstream organizations to bring expertise in athlete and coaching development, physical literacy, and physical activity programs, to Indigenous communities throughout Canada. It is also the franchise holder for the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG), and annually hosts the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC), in addition to effecting policy change at the highest levels of government.
