New: Sport for Social Development in Indigenous Communities

Earlier this year, the Government of Canada announced investments to expand the use of sport and physical activity programming as a means to improve social development in Indigenous communities. The new Sport for Social Development in Indigenous Communities program component will be delivered via two streams.

Stream Two of the Sport for Social Development in Indigenous Communities (SSDIC) component funds Indigenous governments, Indigenous communities and other not-for-profit Indigenous and non-Indigenous delivery organizations to deliver sport for social development projects in Indigenous communities in Canada.
