Across the country, there are more Canadians with a disability who are looking for opportunities to get involved in sport.
“Nobody accomplishes everything by themselves.
Having a sense of community and a feeling of belonging is something that every human wants and needs in order to thrive.
We all want to feel understood. We all want to be seen, heard and valued.
We are stronger together and when our strength and determination is united, we can all climb so much higher. When Para athletes unite, we raise each other higher and we raise the world to a higher standard of inclusion.”
