More Opportunities for Women and Girls in Sport

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

The Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport is funding new programs to provide women and girls with equal access to sports programs, training and coaching. The goal of these programs is to make it easier for women to participate in sports programs and to serve as leaders in these communities.

The initiatives include:

  • Requiring that amateur sports programs have policies and programs to support the inclusion of women and girls
  • Funding the recruitment and training of 250 women coaches and 90 women mentors
  • Developing a national Action Plan for Equal Opportunity in Sport

Getting involved in sports and athletics can be a great way to stay healthy, create friendships and build your self-esteem. Have a look at’s section on Recreation and Sports to learn more.
