The ParticipACTION Community Challenge is a national physical activity and sports initiative that encourages everyone in Canada to get active throughout the month of June in search of Canada’s Most Active Community.
Thanks to the Government of Canada’s Community Sport for All Initiative funding, ParticipACTION provides grants to increase sport and physical activity participation of equity-deserving populations in the 2023 Community Challenge.
Organizations that receive a grant can use these funds to promote or deliver sports and physical activity opportunities to equity-deserving groups, particularly Black, Indigenous, racialized, 2SLGBTQQIA+, persons with a disability, low-income and newcomers to Canada.
