Vote to get Goalball on the Canada 150 Playlist


Dear Members and Supporters:
Canadian Blind Sports has entered Goalball in the Canada 150 Playlist through ParticipAction. The Playlist is in celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary in 2017. Voting is on now for the sports which will be on the Playlist. In order to ensure that the Playlist includes Goalball, please circulate the following links for voting as widely as possible and encourage people to vote for goalball. Please note that you can vote every day until December 9th. I have asked ParticipAction for a French version of the information also – French and English links are below. I will forward the digital tools and other information when I receive it.

Please ask people to let us know if they experience any accessibility difficulties with the voting webpage – this is important to us.
Thank you for your assistance !
