About the Canadian Sport Policy 2023-2033 Draft Review (session 4)

An important part of this year’s event is the Canadian Sport Policy (2023-2033) Draft Policy Review. This will be a virtual workshop-style session utilizing break-out rooms to allow for thoughtful discussion and feedback on the current drafted policy. This renewed policy will be finalized in 2023. Now is your chance to review it with a critical eye given your unique experience in the Canadian sport landscape.

To ensure the new policy reflects the sport Canadians want, SIRC worked together with the FP/T and CSP Renewal Work Groups to hold virtual consultation and engagement sessions in the spring of 2022, to hear from valued and diverse stakeholders from across the country. To complement these insightful discussions, Canadians from across the nation participated in a comprehensive e-survey to further inform the process.

The Policy seeks to improve the sport experience of all Canadians by helping to ensure the harmonious and effective functioning, and transparency of their sport system. The Canadian Sport Policy reflects a new approach to shared leadership and collaboration among all stakeholders to achieve the goals of enhanced participation, excellence, capacity, and interaction in sport. Learn more about the Canadian Sport Policy Renewal (2023-2033).

The Canadian Sport Policy, helps to guide key policy, program and funding decisions. If you are involved in anyway in the sport sector and have an interest in policy development, come ready to participate and embrace the future of sport with us. This session is designed to help set a renewed course for sport in Canada.
