“The ASC [Aboriginal Sport Circle] strives for:


  • Healthier, more active Aboriginal peoples in vibrant communities that are fully engaged in sport, recreation, and physical activity;

  • National systems that systemically include Aboriginal peoples and organizations in strategies, initiatives, programs and services;

  • Provincial/territorial and local capacity development that serves the unique needs of Aboriginal peoples at community levels;

  • Adequately resourced sport, physical activity and recreation systems that are culturally appropriate and enable Aboriginal peoples to achieve success from the playground to the podium;

  • Finally, these outcomes have a positive impact on broader sector agendas including, but not limited to, economic development, health, mental health, environment, and justice for all”
