Meet Special Olympics Canada

Special Olympics Canada is dedicated to enriching the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability through the transformative power of sport.

Special Olympics Canada and its 12 Provincial & Territorial Chapters provide world-class community sports and competitive programming for Canadians with an intellectual disability. Athletes of all ages and abilities participate in programs year-round. This grassroots movement reaches beyond the sphere of sport to empower individuals, change attitudes and build communities.

“Our athletes look to Special Olympics as their social connection to friends and community. Creating and delivering programming to support their mental and physical well-being while in social isolation has been our primary focus for the past few months. We are also doing everything we can to be poised and ready to get our community sports programs up and running again. With the generous support of Sobeys, we have the resources we need to meet our athletes’ immediate needs and re-start programs as soon as it is safe to do so.”
