2003-2004 Nova Scotia Aboriginal Athlete Role Model Program

The NSMSRC is now actively in the process of establishing a Provincial Aboriginal Athlete Role Model Program, in partnership with a funding grant from Justice Canada, in the effort to promote and educate youth across the Province's Mi'kmaw communities through presentations in the Aboriginal school system.  

We have been working to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey (MK), the organization responsible for Aboriginal education across the Province of Nova Scotia in an effort to develop a partnership that will increase opportunity for school aged children and youth in sport, recreation and active living programs.

We have also been developing plans and finalizing the presentation package for the Aboriginal Role Model Program with the selected Aboriginal Role Models and hope to have this program up and running by August 2003.  

We have incorporated some of the ideas that are included in the National Aboriginal Role Model Program in conjunction with Sport Canada's Esteem Team but have also added a few things that will make our program more traditionally oriented to our region.

We will have more information about our program available to you on this website within the next few weeks.  Thank you for your time and interest and hope to be bringing some exciting news on this project very soon!
