Making a Difference & Becoming Different

SportWORKS Projects

Commonwealth Games Canada has been involved in over 125 sport for development and sport development projects in over 30 countries around the world. Brief summaries of some of these projects are given below which includes: their geographic location, partners involved, and the associated CGC initiative.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights sport as “an important enabler of sustainable development”. It recognizes the growing contribution of sport to the realization of development and peace in its promotion of tolerance and respect, and the contributions it makes to the empowerment of women and girls, young people, individuals, and communities, as well as to health, education, gender equality and social inclusion objectives. Thanks to the generous support of the Government and Canada and our other donors, CGC is proud to be one of the world’s pioneers of international sport for development and sport development work.

Game On!

  • Caribbean & Americas
  • Trinidad and Tobago

Game On! is a mass participation program which provides regular sport and physical activity for primary school-aged children. It was developed by the International Alliance for Youth Sport (IAYS) and coordinated by TTASPE. Game On! uses a sport for all philosophy that starts with the development of fundamental motor skills and then moves to the introduction of modified sport in a fun and child-centered approach.

CGC provided volunteers to support the program, one of whom subsequently became a full time member of TTASPE.
