SPORT CANADA ABORIGINAL FRAMEWORK POLICY
DEVELOPMENTAL MEETING FOR NOVA SCOTIA


The Sport Canada Aboriginal Sport Policy will be a Government of Canada policy that will provide a statement of roles, responsibilities and a public commitment to Aboriginal peoples in the area of sport.  While the Government of Canada does not directly impact the community level, Sport Canada will use its influence through partnerships and funding to try to further the objectives of the policy with its Federal-Provincial/Territorial counterparts. To this end, a focus on “horizontal integration” and interaction will be stressed in the policy. A Sport Canada Aboriginal sport policy is an important step in the continued development of Aboriginal sport but this policy will need to be flexible and diverse in the way it is written to encourage sustainability and affect the grassroots.

We will be having our discussions for Aboriginal sport development for the Province of Nova Scotia on the following date:


DATE:        FRIDAY, APRIL 11TH, 2003
PLACE:     MEMBERTOU CORPORATE OFFICE (HALIFAX, NS)
TIME:         9:00AM - 4:00PM


We will be attempting to structure the day to have the morning session include a review of the current Aboriginal Sport Policy, then brainstorm on some of the very important recommendations and comments that we want to suggest to the Sport Canada Aboriginal Framework Committee.  Then, in the afternoon portion of the day, we will plan a Roundtable Conference Call with Sport Canada officials to discuss these same recommendations and comments directly so that they can get first hand information from our Nova Scotia delegation.

Invited guest will include:  Robert Bernard, George Tex Marshall, Colin Bernard, David Nevin, Simon Marshall, Sharlene Pictou, John Jr. Googoo, Cheryl Copage and two other guests from the Western Region.

For more information, please contact Robert Bernard, Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Mi'kmaw Sports & Recreation Circle.
