Through the support of projects that deliver high-quality programs and policies, the OSRCF provides Ontarians with more opportunities to become physically active, including groups who experience barriers to participating and those who are traditionally less active.

Niagara Knowledge Exchange & Community Calendar

Wed
More Than Money: Leveraging the Benefits of Sports Hosting in Niagara @ Brock University - Cairns Building, Room 207
Feb 7 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

In the winter of 2017, Master’s student Chris Charlebois surveyed 251 people attending the Scotties Tournament of Hearts to measure how they perceived the national championship affecting St. Catharines and Niagara region in terms of economic, social, and environmental impacts.

This Niagara Community Observatory policy brief #30, written by Charlebois and Julie Stevens (Director of the Centre for Sport Capacity) presents those findings, as well as economic impact indicators of eight other sporting events held in Niagara over the past five years, in an effort to offer a better methodology for local decision-makers to measure the success of these types of events, and in turn, find ways to effectively support sport-event hosts in the region.

Panelists to be announced. Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided. RSVP to Carol Phillips (contact information above).

This research presentation and panel discussion is hosted by the Niagara Community Observatory and Centre for Sport Capacity.
