Indigenous Long-Term Participant Development Pathway - Sport Organization Guide

This resource was created to give sport organizations an appreciation for, and the knowledge to, maximize collaboration with the Indigenous sport system.
This document also maps out how the mainstream sport system can support Indigenous athletes as they move between systems.

By using this guide, sport organizations will improve the quality of the sporting experience for Indigenous athletes. By improving their experiences, sport organizations will benefit from enhanced capacity through mutually beneficial partnerships with Indigenous sport leadership, increased athlete and coach participation, and potential increases in podium performances.

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.
