Toronto, ON: Today, Inclusion in Canadian Sports Network (ICSN) announced that the
organization has received $820,500 in a multi-year funding from the Sport Support Program’s
Gender Equity – Equity, Diversity Inclusion component.

The funding aims to support Gender Equity in Sport as well as fund Diversity in Sports to
breakdown barriers for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC). Funding will be used to support the Diversity in Sports Conference, the Emerging BIPOC Leaders program, and the Anti-Racism in Sport Toolkit that will be released in Fall 2024.

“Sport in Canada needs to look like Canada. Our government is proud to invest in the efforts of the Inclusion in Canadian Sports Network, which advances equal opportunities for everyone in sport. The organization’s leadership in anti-racism and diversity initiatives in this space is essential and helps pave the way for more communities across the country to see themselves represented in sport. Because of this work, we can build a safer, more inclusive and more welcoming sport system here in Canada,” said the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Sport and Physical Activity.

Inclusion in Canadian Sports Network (ICSN), formally known as The Black Canadian Coaches Association (BCCA) is a Black-led organization committed to the empowerment of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) within the Canadian amateur sports community. Our mission revolves around three core objectives: celebration, advocacy through allyship, and networking.

Our vision is to cultivate a more racially diverse and inclusive Canadian amateur sports
landscape by creating pathways to increase the representation of BIPOC Canadian coaches, officials, sport administrators, and support staff. We achieve this through communication, education, professional development, sharing job opportunities, and nurturing resiliency skills.
