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 !
Info from ParticipAction:
The 150 Play List voting and submission campaign has launched and the race is on to get your sports and activities included on the list!
Help us celebrate the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada and reawaken the desire and pride of all Canadians to regularly take part in sport and physical activity.
Tell me how to get my sports and activities on the list!
Help make sure that the sports and physical activities that your organization offers make it on the list by encouraging your members to vote and submit sports and physical activities below (next week we’ll be sending you some digital tools to help you spread the word!). Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, Carla Qualtrough, is making sure her faves make the list and you should too!
