"The Canadian Paralympic Committee is pleased to see Minister Duncan's continued emphasis on working towards gender equity and making sport at all levels more accessible and welcoming to girls and women. We strongly believe in the power of sport to positively impact one's life, and that sport should be accessible to people of all abilities, gender, and background.
