  1. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Calls to Action #66 and #90 which states:

    1. Youth Programs: We call upon the federal government to establish multiyear funding for community-based youth organizations to deliver programs on reconciliation and establish a national network to share information and best practices.

    2. Sports and Reconciliation: We call upon the federal government to ensure that national sports policies, programs, and initiatives are inclusive of Aboriginal peoples, including, but not limited to, establishing:

      1. In collaboration with provincial and territorial governments, stable funding for, and access to, community sports programs that reflect the diverse cultures and traditional sporting activities of Aboriginal peoples.

      2. An elite athlete development program for Aboriginal athletes.

      3. Programs for coaches, trainers, and sports officials that are culturally relevant for Aboriginal peoples.
