Anti-Racism in Sport Research Report

A shared goal amongst the partners on the Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign is to use research and education to develop tools to identify and disrupt racism in sport in order to address and eliminate barriers to sport participation for First Nations, Métis Nation, Inuit, Black, Racialized and religious minority communities in Winnipeg.

The research described in this report was conducted to inform the Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign’s public awareness campaign, school presentations, training presentations and workshops, and the development of an Anti-Racism in Sport Accord. The research involved 12 online focus groups involving 39 participants who take part in sport in Winnipeg as athletes, coaches, officials and/or service providers. Through these focus group discussions, participants provided their insights via their lived experiences as members of Winnipeg’s sport community.

This research was conducted by researchers from the University of Manitoba Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management.
