Creating Welcoming & Culturally Safe Places for Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity for Newcomers
Delivered by: Winnipeg Newcomer Sport Academy
Is your organization looking to expand and welcome participation among newcomer populations? Newcomers to Winnipeg certainly have a keen interest in participating in sport and physical activity and want to receive the benefits of participation. We speak of the importance of diverse and inclusive places. Yet the actions to create welcoming and culturally safe places are often missing and can perhaps be attributed to the lack of opportunities to hear from those with lived experiences as newcomers to Canada. During this session, you will hear about the newcomer experiences in sport and recreation and what can be done to remove barriers, be more welcoming, developmentally appropriate and culturally safe.
This workshop is the beginning of an opportunity to expand our world view and take action toward a more welcoming, safe and inclusive places for newcomers in Canada.
