Sport is a powerful tool for social change. We believe that by empowering women and girls within and through sport, we can transform our sport system and our society for the better. We are committed to demonstrating our impact as we continue to drive this mission forward.
Building the Future of Sport, Together – 2019-2020
So far 2020 has been challenging and illuminating. The COVID-19 pandemic represents catastrophic loss, but particularly for women, racialized people, and low-income communities. Black Lives Matter protests across the world are calling attention to systemic anti-black racism in policing and beyond. We must remain humble and diligent in our pursuit of equity and commit to carrying forward the energy from this moment.
With the support of our partners, we’re continuing to inspire innovative work and build a better sport system for everyone. Our collective journey towards gender equity requires exceptional teamwork, dedication, and vision – and we’re not there yet. There’s a place for everyone in designing the future of sport.
Raising the Bar – 2018-2019
Canadian Women & Sport is proud to share ‘Raising the Bar’, our Impact Report for 2018-2019.
The last year has been one of the most significant periods of growth in the organization’s 39-year history and one of the most productive in recent memory for gender equity in sport, thanks to renewed commitments from both Sport Canada and sport organizations and leaders across the country.
Read the report to see highlights from our year, including an historic $3M investment, our new sport leadership pilot program for girls, and an appearance on Hockey Night in Canada.
