The necessity for accessible soccer is growing at an exponential rate and Ontario Soccer and its member Clubs are up for the challenge. Ontario Soccer recognizes the growth in soccer for players of All Abilities. All Abilities Soccer programs now exist in over 20 Clubs across Ontario and bespoke resources have been created to assist all member Clubs with starting their own All Abilities programs. In addition, we are actively working with ParaSport Ontario and the Coaching Association of Ontario to create more opportunities for match officials and coaches.
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.
