June is Pride Month & National Indigenous History Month 

June marks two big milestones in the calendar year - Pride Month and Indigenous History Month.   
Pride Month celebrations are being held across North America for the month of June, celebrating the history and diversity of 2SLGBTQ+ community.   
National Indigenous History Month is a time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples across Canada.  
Access resources to continue your learning during Pride Month:  
Follow organizations like the Sport Inclusion Task Force who are leading the charge for an inclusive sport society.   
Watch our We Are Sport: LGBT2IS+ Inclusion webinar on a conversation with athletes and leaders from the LGBTQI2S sports community on what inclusion and allyship in sport should look like to ensure that there is a place for everyone to participate.  
Access viasport’s 2SLGBTQ+ resource page for sport organizations.   
Participate in our Leading the Way: 2SLGBTQ+ Inclusion in Sport workshop for your organization. 
Access resources to continue your learning during Indigenous History Month:  
Learn about inspiring Indigenous peoples who have helped shape Canadian history.  
Utilize the Native Land Digital site which includes educational resources such as their map and Territory Acknowledgement Guide.  
Explore more about the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.  
Use the hashtag #NIHM2022 to stay connected on social media.  
Stay connected with the Aboriginal Sport Circle - Canada’s national voice for Aboriginal sport, physical activity and recreation.  
Understand the five calls to action related to sport in the Truth of Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. 

Extreme Heat and Air Quality Guidelines  

Concerns for air quality and extreme heat have become more prevalent in recent years. 
To support safety for all participants, we have added new Extreme Heat and Air Quality Guidelines, to the Section 13 Risk Management Policy
All event organizers need to be aware and respond as recommended.  Member Organizations should undertake education with all your participants, coaches, manager, referees and organizers to increase awareness and implementation of these guidelines.
Visit Everyone’s Game Resource Centre in our bi-weekly communication to find informational and inspirational articles, member interviews, and developmental opportunities. 
Indigenous peoples have often not been included in sport. There is a parallel sport system that is Indigenous-led and is for Indigenous participants. Appreciating the Indigenous sport system and understanding how the two systems can work together will be the focus of this session.
