Indigenous Long-Term Participant Development Pathway: Supporting Indigenous Participation Workshop (Two Day)

The Indigenous Long-Term Participant Development Pathway resource and Supporting Indigenous Participation workshop is designed to help sport and physical activity leaders and organizations across Canada enhance their understanding about how to support Indigenous participants and athletes in their programming.

The workshop will spend time developing an appreciation of Indigenous culture, and how that culture plays out in terms of engagement and sustained participation through the sport system.  It will outline the key elements that need to be considered when planning, developing, and implementing programs for and with Indigenous peoples and communities, including a focus on supporting the physical, mental, spiritual, and cultural needs of the individual to maximize their experience in sport and physical activity.  The workshop will focus on how we can adjust the competition pathway and some of the policies within the system to ensure that we create a clearer pathway for Indigenous participants and athletes.
