Canadian Women & Sport

Formally launched in 1981, Canadian Women & Sport was founded to advocate for progressive change within Canada’s sport system. Its goal was to see the enhanced presence of girls and women at all levels and in all areas – as athletes, participants, leaders, officials, coaches and trainers

They are dedicated to creating an equitable and inclusive Canadian sport and physical activity system that empowers girls and women – as active participants and leaders – within and through sport.

Your Role - 2020 Campaign

In November 2020, in partnership with Canadian Women and Sport, we launched the Your Role Campaign, to help bring attention to various barriers girls and women in Archery endure. Please see below media resources that can be used:

Additionally, in correlation with the launch of the campaign, we held a panel discussion to begin the discussion amongst athletes, coaches and clubs on these barriers and how to address. The discussion is available for viewing on the ArcheryCanadaTV Youtube page
