ParaSport® Ontario. There is a sport for everyBODY!”


Powerlifting Classification

There are eight qualifying physical impairments for eligibility in para-powerlifting, including visual impairment. They all must interfere with sport performance. All athletes with a disability in their lower limbs or hips, or with a single or double amputation through or above the ankle, compete in the same sport class, but in different weight groups and gender class.

Sponsor Message

We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
