The 2020 North American Federation of Adapted Physical Activity Conference preliminary information



Brock University: a campus that is located on a protected biosphere with significant ties to the indigenous peoples of this territory. One can be in the middle of a forest or on the Bruce trail without leaving the campus.

Brock University is situated in the Niagara region in the City of St. Catharines. Within an hour’s drive to the City Centre of Toronto and 20 minute drive to Niagara Falls. Known as the “Garden City,” St. Catharines is surrounded by lush orchards and vineyards to the east and west, and bordered by the Niagara Escarpment to the south and Lake Ontario to the north. Brock University sits on top of the beautiful Niagara escarpment and is the only Canadian university with the distinction of being part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
