Toronto Sport Summit

City of Sport Community Coach with her players in the BCE atrium

On November 19, the City of Toronto, in collaboration with Toronto Sports Council and Humber School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism, hosted the Toronto Sport Summit. This event provided a consultation, learning and networking opportunity for Toronto community-sport leaders, as well as representatives of clubs, leagues, multi-sport organizations, funding partners and other community sport program providers.

More than 220 members of the Toronto sport community, including almost 140 delegates from sport-related organizations across the city and 80 Humber Sport Management and Recreation students attended. We had over 70 different sport-related groups registered; this tremendous range of attendees reflects the diversity of sport interests and opportunities available in Toronto.
