Sport Canada Research Initiative

Français

In 2005, as part of the Sport Canada Research Initiative (SCRI), Sport Canada launched a joint initiative with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) called the Sport Participation Research Initiative (SPRI). Sport Canada is funding the SPRI to better evidence the benefits of, and barriers to, quality sport participation with the aim of improving Canadian sport policy outcomes.

An important component of the SCRI council-based research program is the annual research conference, where all current SSHRC funded sport researchers gather together with policy makers to share their knowledge and expertise in view of maximizing the practical applications of sport participation research. Some specific objectives of the conference include: strengthening the link between sport research and the development of sport participation policy in Canada; nurturing an effective dialogue between Canadian sport researchers and sport policy makers; encouraging graduate students to contribute to and remain in the field of sport policy; and, improving the SCRI council-based program.
