What is the Sport Matters Group?
The SMG is a voluntary group of individuals who have come together to talk about the important contribution that sport makes to society, and to collaborate on various sport policy issues on an ad hoc basis.

With your participation, our campaign will reach-out to candidates in all 308 ridings across Canada with your message about the power of sport.

It is easy - when you have a clear idea of your mission. And there’s no doubt that where there’s a will - and a blueprint like the Sport Matters Group - there is a well-paved way.
Thanks, Jessica, for the heads up.
