Sport is the biggest thing Canada is making strides in. In the last couple of years, our government along with school boards have recognized that sports are becoming more and more expensive to play or join. So how can they make it affordable and accessible for all kids epically the underprivileged?

Incentives

The Government has come up with incentives and different methods in order to get all kids from various backgrounds and homes out and playing and enjoying sports. They have connected with professional athletes and various teams to help reach out to the underprivileged kids.

More Accessible

They are making it more accessible to the underprivileged youth by building basketball courts near their housing and trying to fund a community center where they could use it for multipurpose of various sports. Although they are making strides in this area there is a long way to go.

Involvement

Sports involve coaches, volunteers, parents, and a safe space to enjoy the sport. To achieve all of this you need to build on relationships in communities and see what is needed in that specific area to help the cause. The underprivileged youth need people to get together and build these fields, courts, and rinks so they can enjoy themselves whether they have money or not.

Programs

In Toronto, they have different outreach programs that help the underprivileged by having professional athletes start day camps or weekend camps where it is free to sign up and join. They have been doing a good job and will need to keep promoting sports and physical activity for both good mental health and physical health for our youth.

As long as Canada can keep making sports more affordable and accessible, underprivileged youth will see great benefits from this going forward. It is something that has rightfully become a priority.
