June Newsletter: A month of celebration and learning

June marks two big milestones in the calendar year – Pride Month and Indigenous History Month.  

Pride Month celebrations are being held across North America for the month of June, celebrating the history and diversity of 2SLGBTQ+ community.  

National Indigenous History Month is a time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples across Canada.

Gender Equity Initiatives From Our Friends:

  • The Canadian Sport Policy is set to be renewed in February 2023. The renewed sport policy will help to identify Canadian sport priorities and provide guidance to Federal, Provincial and Territorial governments in advancing sport for the next 10 years (2023-2033). To complement and further inform the process, all Canadians are invited to complete the survey. If you agree that gender equity is important for advancing sport in Canada, make your opinion known. Complete the survey by June 23, 2022. Access the survey here.
