Our goal is to enrich the lives of persons with physical challenges by offering them the opportunity to participate in athletics. Participation in sports can promote development in all areas of one’s life: physically, mentally and socially. We strive to instill a sense of confidence and accomplishment so that these feelings will spread to all other aspects of their lives.
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.
