About the Power of Sport

Sport has the power to reduce crime, foster character and citizenship, introduce newcomers to their communities, stimulate the local economy, provide adult mentorship for young people, teach kids important life lessons and strengthen community connectedness.  Unfortunately, sport participation is on the decline in our country.  Over the past two decades, sport participation rates in Canadian youth aged 15 to 18 dropped from 77% to 59% – and in adults, from 45% to 28%.  Over half of Canadian adults are considered inactive, and only 7% of our children and youth are active enough to meet Canada’s Physical Activity Guidelines.
