Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action 89 - Call upon the federal government to amend the Physical Activity and Sport Act to support reconciliation

Synopsis

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #89, calls upon the federal government to “amend the Physical Activity and Sport Act to support reconciliation by ensuring that policies to promote physical activity as a fundamental element of health and well-being reduce barriers to sports participation, increase the pursuit of excellence in sport and build capacity in the Canadian sport system, are inclusive of Aboriginal peoples”. The 2003 Act sets out the Government of Canada’s policies regarding physical activity and sport as well as the mandate of the Minister of Canadian Heritage (Sport) in respect of physical activity and sport.

Given that changes to the legislation will require consultation with other federal government departments in collaboration with the Aboriginal Sport Circle, discussions with Indigenous sport stakeholders have concluded that this will be a longer-term deliverable.
