Canadian Sport Policy Renewal


In the summer of 2011, Canada's Public Policy Forum convened a dozen roundtables across the country to explore whether or how community-building might be included in the next iteration of the Canadian sport policy. This roundtable series, which was part of the Canadian Sport Policy Renewal Process, brought together federal, provincial and municipal officials as well as sport and community leaders to determine whether a policy framework could be created that includes community-building but leaves the core business of sport unchanged. This report captures the key findings of the 12 roundtables and outlines how the new Canadian sport policy can purposely use sport to achieve healthier, more socially engaged communities.
