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.
