Moving Forward: A National Roundtable on Aboriginal Women in Sport


Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS)

The National Roundtable on Aboriginal Women in Sport, hosted Feb 22-24, 2008 was part of a larger effort by academics and practitioners to identify and discuss sport and recreation issues that are important to Aboriginal people in Canada. Its goal is to develop strategies to increase Aboriginal involvement in sport and recreation by identifying the strengths of the existing delivery systems, the barriers and challenges to participation, and opportunities to increase access and equity for Aboriginal people in this area of social life. Moving Forward also outlines some of the main activities delegates believe will help to engage, retain, and increase the involvement of Aboriginal women in sport and recreation in Canada.
