Sport Volunteerism in Small Communities in the Northwest Territories


The purpose of this study, carried out from October 2004 to July 2005, was to examine sport volunteerism in small communities in the Northwest Territories (NWT). The three main objectives of the study were: 1) to gain a better understanding of sport volunteerism in small communities in the NWT; 2) to examine the barriers that prevent participation in sport volunteering, including personal, social, economic and cultural barriers; and, 3) to develop a set of recommendations that might assist in increasing volunteerism in sport in small communities.
