Considering the Practicalities and Possibilities of Intersectoral Collaborations: Reflections on an Academic/ Practitioner Research Project
Co-Presenters: Dr. William Bridel, Simon Barrick and Joan Bard Miller
Sport is popularly promoted as a way for immigrants to integrate into local communities and Canadian culture more generally. However, research has revealed different barriers to sport and leisure participation experienced by newcomers. A partnership between two national sport organizations and an academic team seeks to better understand how immigrants integrate into Canadian society through sport participation.
