ParaSport® Ontario. There is a sport for everyBODY!”

Row Ontario

Para-rowing is sweep rowing or sculling for people with physical disabilities/limitations, including, hearing impairment, paraplegia, quadriplegia, blindness, visual impairment, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and spina bifida. In para-rowing, there are three classification categories – PR1, PR2 and PR3. In 2008, para-rowing was welcomed into the Paralympic programme. Several rowing clubs across Ontario run para-rowing programs.

Hi, I’m Chris Marshall, Director of Rowing Pathways and Performance at Row Ontario. Rowing is a sport to be enjoyed by all and many different types of disabilities can be accommodated within the same crew, allowing for integration among disabilities and ultimately, integration into regular programs within a club.

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.
