Hi everyone, my name is Rachel and I'm from the GTA. I love participating in parasports because they give me the ability to be competitive and physical in my power wheelchair, while at the same time making great friendships with my peers. Please reach out if you have any questions or want to chat about what you can get involved in!
Parasport Role: Ambassadors
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.
