Sport events are on the summer calendar include: Canoeing, Soccer, Softball, Lacrosse, Golf and VolleyballWith the support of the Provincial Government, the Aboriginal Sport, Recreation & Physical Activity Partners Council (Partners Council) has been working together with the various Host Communities to stage quality events while keeping registration fees low. To further minimize the cost of participation, some event hosts are offering free camping facilities or providing meals to participants.
