We are committed to providing opportunities for athletes with a disability to participate in a fully integrated sport program at the level they choose. It promotes growth at the initiation, developmental, competitive and elite levels, and offers programs for youth, women, and men.
Sport for All
We believe that inclusion is fundamental to achieving equity and access in sport and therefore promotes the "sport for all" concept, encouraging athletes with a disability and able-bodied athletes to compete together on the same basketball court within a classification system. This system allows for fair and equitable competition for all.
Doping ControlWheelchair Basketball Canada promotes competitions that are fair, ethical, and free from banned substances. We work in conjunction with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport & follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Canadian Anti Doping Program. More information can be found on the [Doping Control] page.

We work closely with Canada Basketball and Canadian Paralympics Committee (CPC) to ensure that athletes have access to all the information and support available. Sport Canada provides financial support for Wheelchair Basketball Canada programs through Canada Basketball.
