Check out SIRC's recent newsletter on Sport and Social Development.

Sport is a tool that has far-reaching affect on society. From Africa to Canada it can be used to educate youth, reduce the risk of disease, prevent crime, provide economic development, aid in social inclusion, increase environmental awareness and bring communities closer together.

On November 6th the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) released a new report from the True Sport Movement. What Sport Can Do: A True Sport Report outlines community sport in Canada and how it is an integral part of Canadian society by examining how it improves health and well-being, puts children on a positive life course, builds stronger and more inclusive communities, contributes to Canadian economy and promotes environmental sustainability.
