The Community Sport Fund (CSF), part of ISWO’s Well Nation program, was developed to increase access to sport opportunities, support social and community development, and enhance wellness. The Community Sport Fund is available for projects submitted by Indigenous communities, Indigenous organizations and not-for-profit organizations working in collaboration with Indigenous communities.
Grants from the fund are available to remote rural communities where sport opportunities are fewer, as well as to large urban Indigenous populations where low sport participation rates exist.
The ISWO Community Sport Fund is made possible through funding provided by the Sport for Social Development in Indigenous Communities (SSDIC) program by Sport Canada. The Community Sport Fund supports projects that contribute to the following four social development outcomes:
- improved health and wellness;
- improved education;
- reduced at-risk behaviour; and
- improved employability.
