Anti-Racism in Sport
The Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign seeks to increase, promote, and engage in discussions on anti-racism in sport about the presence of all levels of racism in sport in Winnipeg and its impact on people’s lives, and raise awareness, address, and eliminate racism and discrimination experienced by First Nations, Metis, Inuit, Black, Racialized, and Religious Minority communities in sport in Winnipeg.
This campaign seeks to help people identify and disrupt all forms of racism through multiple activities that includes research, school presentations, stakeholder training, a public awareness campaign, and an Anti-Racism in Sport Accord.
On April 21st 2021 Immigration Partnership Winnipeg’s Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign, officially launched to the public and was MCed by local business owner and Blue Bomber legend Ibrahim “Obby” Khan!

Through school presentations, the campaign will educate middle school students on the negative impacts of racism and discrimination in sport, educate students on how to identify and address racism and discrimination, and promote inclusion and diversity within sport activities within and outside of school.
Training (Fall 2021)
Our training will include presentations and workshops for key sport stakeholders with education and training on how to identify, address and eliminate racism and discrimination in sport. This includes incorporating Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, specifically, 89 and 90, to address barriers, policies, programs, and initiatives for physical activity and sport, and that they are inclusive of Indigenous peoples.
The Anti-Racism in Sport Calls to Action Accord was launched in Winnipeg on April 21, 2022.
