We’re committed to driving change through actionable, evidence-based resources that address gender equity challenges in sport at the ground level. Our resources will help you understand how to prioritize inclusion in your work on a day-to-day basis.

Applications Open: Spotlight Grant

Canadian Women & Sport’s Spotlight Grant aims to shine a light on girls, women and gender-diverse individuals who typically don’t get the access, support, or funding they need to fully participate in sport and physical activity.

The Spotlight Grant is part of the Community Sport for All initiative which seeks to remove barriers and increase sport participation rates for underrepresented communities. This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
