The Indigenous Sport Leadership Council is volunteer-driven, community-based committee. The committee is a primary mechanism to assist the Sask Sport Board of Directors with strategic direction in regards to Indigenous participation throughout province.
The council is supported by Sask Sport in partnership with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations and Métis Nation Saskatchewan. Sask Sport staff are assigned to support all aspects of the work provided by the council. Meetings are held six times per year with a retreat in the spring. There are currently 12 members on the Indigenous Sport Leadership Council.
All sport programs that strategically engage and support Indigenous participants are valued and nurtured through the strategies and advice provided by the Indigenous Sport Leadership Council. The Council and its members have a vested interest to assist the sport federation and its partners to ensure that Indigenous participation in sport is a priority.
The Indigenous Sport Leadership Council is supported by the Government of Canada and the Province of Saskatchewan through the General Participation and Indigenous Participation Bilateral Agreements.
