The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) announced today a new $8M investment that will increase participation and retention of equity-deserving groups in recreational sport in Canada. Entitled “Reaching Each and Every One: A Community Sport Intervention”, this major investment was made possible through CPRA’s successful application to the Government of Canada (Sport Canada) Community Sport for All Initiative.

This funding will allow CPRA to support community-led projects that remove barriers and increase participation rates in recreational sport for underrepresented groups, in particular, Black, Indigenous, racially diverse, 2SLGBTQQIA+, low-income and newcomer populations, and people living with disabilities.
Effective immediately, eligible organizations can apply for grants up to $50,000 that address barriers to sport via CPRA’s “Reaching Each and Every One: A Community Sport Intervention”. For more information on eligibility, timelines, and how to apply, please visit: cpra.ca
