Inclusive Community Recreation Resources

From Canada’s west coast, Recreation Integration Victoria has collected a robust list of resources on the ways and benefits of including people with disabilities in community sports and recreation.  

The site offers over two hundred links to topics as varied as Curling Canada’s Wheelchair Curling Blog and videos from the BBC such as “Things Not to Say to People with Autism.” The list of resources is broken down into 23 categories, including:

· Disability Awareness & Inclusion Training Materials

· Language and Etiquette

· The Benefits of Sport and Recreation for People with Disabilities

· Changing Attitudes and Challenging Mindsets

· Coaching Athletes with a Disability

· Healthy Lifestyles for People with Disabilities

· Invisible Disabilities

Recreation Integration Victoria assists people with disabilities in the Greater Victoria area of the Province of British Columbia to pursue active lifestyles. Their vision is “for all people with disabilities to have equal opportunities to participate in our community.”
