Sport Manitoba has partnered with Sport for Life to deliver the 2022 Sport for Life Canadian Summit in Winnipeg!

Sport Manitoba supports and plans sports programs to promote the development of vibrant citizens, athletes, and communities in Manitoba. Together, Sport Manitoba and Sport for Life will deliver a program that highlights and helps advance these goals, while providing the tools and knowledge needed to strengthen Manitobans through sport and physical activity.

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from influential and inspiring keynote speakers, as well as from a range of community members and leaders who will present on community-specific topics and issues. These presentations will all connect to the Summit’s theme and streams. A portion of each day’s program will be dedicated to facilitated discussion and workshopping where the delegates will address key issues pertaining to the theme, streams and keynote messages, but with a local focus.
