Ontario Para Network (ONPARA)
ParaSport Role: Partners
The Ontario Para Network (ONPARA) is the Provincial Sport Organization for wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, and wheelchair tennis.
At ONPARA, we offer opportunities for athletes, coaches, and volunteers to participate in recreational, competitive, and high-performance programs in any of our three sports. Together with our network of partners, we are committed to building strong and inclusive sport communities. What we do: we connect people to local clubs, programs, and coaches; we provide opportunities to try our sports first-hand; we offer sport wheelchair rentals at a low monthly cost; we offer education, awareness, and inclusion opportunities for students and teachers.
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.
