- Contribution Centre
We have made significant policy breakthroughs over the years though much remains to be done. The work of your SMG has contributed to the creation of the Children's Fitness Tax Credit and the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RINC) Program. Our goal is to build upon these successes and work toward making Canada the healthy, leading sport nation we know it can be.
SMG is committed to advancing public policy related to sport and physical activity. Our approach is to consult broadly and work collaboratively with interested members of the sport sector in order to advance a common position.
Together, we help raise awareness of the important benefits of Canadian sport and physical activity among key decision and policy-makers, and advocate for continued governmental support and investment in this area. SMG is a forum within which member organizations work together to ensure that all Canadians have access to meaningful opportunities to participate in sport & physical activity, from the playground to podium.
