The Aboriginal Long-Term Participant Development Pathway workshop is designed to help sport and physical activity organizations across Canada enhance their understanding about how to support Aboriginal participants and athletes in their programming. The workshop will spend time developing an appreciation of Aboriginal culture, and how that culture plays out in terms of engagement and sustained participation through the sport system. It will outline the key elements that need to be considered when planning, developing and implementing programs for and with Aboriginal peoples and communities, including a focus on supporting the physical, mental, spiritual and cultural needs of the individual to maximize their experience in sport and physical activity. The workshop will focus on how we can adjust the competition pathway and some of the policies within the system to ensure that we create a clearer pathway for Aboriginal participants and athletes.
