CELEBRATE PRIDE MONTH IN JUNE

June 4, 2021

June is known across the world as Pride Month. Parades, festivals and events celebrating the LGBTQ2SI+ community happen across the world in the month and Canada is no different.

The Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan is committed to providing fun, safe and healthy sport environments, as well as encouraging and supporting diverse and inclusive sport opportunities. Follow along with us every Friday in June for resources, information and stores to celebrate Pride Month through the eyes of sport

Resources from partner organizations throughout Canada help shape and guide how to be a LGBTQ2SI+  ally in sport.

Local Resources

Saskatchewan has a strong support network for the LGBTQ2SI+ community. OUTSaskatoon lists a variety of networks and organizations across the province.

Sport Inclusion Task Force

during the 2015 Pan American Games, the Sport Inclusion Task Force is steered by the Canadian Olympic Committee, Professional Golfers Association of Canada, Canadian Women & Sport, the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and Challenge Accepted Collective.

The group launched sportinclusion.ca in June 2021. The site will support National, Provincial/Territorial and Local/Club Sport Organizations intent on making their organizations more equitable, diverse and inclusive for those who identify as LGBTQ2SI+.

Coaching Association of Canada

Coaches play a key role in creating a safe and inclusive environment. The Coaching Association of Canada has created a guide for working with LGBTQ2SI+ athletes and coaches.

One Team, Team Canada

Created by the Canadian Olympic Committee in collaboration with You Can Play and Egale Canada, the One Team initiative was created to fight gender-based discrimination, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, or any other type of discrimination in sport.

Egale Canada

Egale is Canada’s leading organization for LGBTQ2SI+  people and issues. The group works to improve lives through research, education, awareness and advocacy.

The website includes resources, training and workshops for downloading and sharing.

You Can Play Project

You Can Play’s mission is to ensure the safety and inclusion of all LGBTQ2SI+  people in sports, including athletes, coaches, staff and fans. The group works with partners to evolve locker room and spectator culture, consults on inclusion policies, build stronger fan engagement and increase participation in sports among LGBTQ2SI+  youth.
