VISION: CHANGE THE FACE OF GOLF TO REFLECT THE MULTICULTURAL STRENGTH OF THE CANADIAN POPULATION
As the National Sport Federation and governing body, Golf Canada is committed to creating a safe, diverse, and welcoming environment within our organization and across our sport.
We recognize that even as Canada’s most participated sport, golf is a privilege, and we know that our sport is not free from prejudice, stigma, racism, or systemic bias. Golf Canada stands in solidarity with racialized persons and equity seeking groups and is working to better understand the challenges of racialized communities as well as the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and golfers with a disability.
Golf Canada formed the Diversity & Inclusion Alliance working group to develop a Strategic Action Plan that will guide the organization’s efforts to create a more inclusive and respectful sport environment. This includes a review of Golf Canada’s policy for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; education and training for staff and volunteers; integration of diversity elements across all programs, events and partnerships; and a commitment to be a leading voice in global golf that supports diversity and inclusion in the communities where we live, work and play.
