The Canadian Disability Participant Project (CDPP) is an alliance of university, public, private and government sector partners working together to enhance community participation among Canadians with physical disabilities.
Sport & Exercise
Our goal is to develop, test and implement evidence-based best-practices to increase the number of people with disabilities who participate in sport and exercise, and to improve the quality of their participation experiences. These practices might be directed toward coaches, parents, sport and exercise program administrators, facility managers, or individuals looking to become more physically active
On the website are a number of documents and resources. For example;
- The Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children, Youth, and Adults with a Disability including Quality Participation Checklist Audit Tool
- Evidence-Based Strategies for Building Quality Participation in Sports for Children, Youth, and Adults with Disability
- National approaches to promote sports and physical activity in adults with disabilities: Examples from the Netherlands and Canada
