Canadian Sport Policy Update

The first-ever Canadian Sport  Policy was established in 2002.  It described a vision and goals for sport  through to the year 2012.

Over the past two years  Canadians, including over 400 individual Manitobans and sport partner  organizations, have been actively engaged in sharing their views on what sport  should look like in Canada as part of consultations for the renewal of the
Canadian Sport Policy post-2012. See the attached Manitoba Update as well as  the Focus Groups Summary (87 page) Full Report. Manitoba Focus Groups.pdf

The renewed Canadian Sport  Policy seeks to capture and embrace the value and importance of sport and  advance the public policy outcomes inspired by sport in Canada. The draft of  the Canadian Sport Policy 2.0 is now available for your review.

Sport Manitoba’s Partner  Organizations as well as individuals are invited to submit their comments on  the draft policy before March 7, 2012.

In particular we would like to  hear:

  • What are the strengths of the  draft CSP 2.0?
  • What are its weaknesses?
  • How could these weaknesses be  addressed?
  • Do you have any additional  comments and feedback?

To provide your  feedback…please go to:

Your feedback will be taken  into consideration in the development of a final draft document that will be  presented in June 2012 to federal, provincial and territorial ministers  responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation for their endorsement.
