INUVIK, NT, June 27, 2012 /CNW/ - It is with great pleasure that today,
I, along with my provincial and territorial colleagues responsible for
sport, physical activity and recreation, endorsed the new Canadian
Sport Policy (CSP) 2012.
The endorsement of the CSP 2012 is an important step towards encouraging
Canadians to become more physically active and celebrating our country
as a leading sport nation.
The CSP 2012 is the successor policy to the first ever Canadian sport
policy, which was approved in Nunavut in 2002. The policy has been
designed as a roadmap for all governments, institutions and
organizations that are committed to contributing to the positive
benefits and impacts of sport on Canadians.
The Harper Government is the single largest contributor to sport in this
country, supporting participation and excellence from playground to
