An important segment of AHC’s PASS Project was the PASS research compiled in collaboration with the University of Alberta. The purpose of the PASS Research was to investigate and identify the barriers contributing to low participation of racialized youth in recreation and organized sports and ultimately develop recommendations to policy-makers to lower those barriers. To better understand these barriers and practical recommendations to overcome them, download the digital version of this research.

AHC’s Participating in Arts, Sports, and Society (PASS) project is a 18-month initiative aimed at addressing the barriers and challenges faced by racialized newcomer youth in accessing and participating in sports activities. The project seeks to create an inclusive and equitable sports environment where all youth, regardless of their background, have equal opportunities for personal growth, social integration, and well-being.
