The Board of Directors of the Inclusion in Canadian Sports Network (ICSN), formerly known as The Black Canadian Coaches Association (BCCA), is proud to announce a groundbreaking initiative that unites various amateur sport organizations, cultural institutions, and grassroots clubs under a single banner. This united effort is dedicated to addressing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and combating Anti Racism within the Canadian sport industry.

ISCN, a Canadian Not-for-Profit organization, represents a collective and dedicated individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a common commitment to advancing racial equity within the Canadian amateur sports community.

Our vision remains steadfast: to foster a safer, more racially diverse, and inclusive environment within the Canadian sports arena, particularly within the amateur sports sector.

ICSN will spearhead collaborative efforts across multiple domains, with a focus on empowering Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) individuals. These efforts will encompass crucial areas such as Coaches’ Support, Officials’ Support, Sports Medicine Support, Sport Administrators’ Support, and nurturing the next generation of BIPOC leaders.

Through strategic partnerships, ICSN will continue to implement transformative programs, including mentorship initiatives, and furnish educational toolkits and resources aimed at promoting EDI and Anti-Racism. Most importantly, ICSN will be a resolute advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, actively driving change within the Canadian amateur sports ecosystem.

The Board of Directors of ICSN is committed to upholding these principles and, in collaboration with our partners stakeholders, effecting lasting change within the Canadian sports industry. Together, we will build a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive future for all participants in Canadian sports.
