ParaSport® Ontario is inviting student classes, educators and assistants from Secondary Schools across the Niagara Region to participate in a special event called the Niagara Parasport Festival.
A two-day community festival, and Day One is Education Day, dedicated exclusivity to Niagara’s high school community.

“All In for EveryBODY” is a unique learning day to open minds to new perspectives and ideas about inclusive and adapted sport and recreation.

Highly sought-after keynote speakers from Ontario’s disability community, like Niagara’s own Paralympian Jeff Tiessen, renowned TedX "body positivity" speaker Talli Osborne and “Lady of the Lakes” Marathon Swimmer Vicki Keith, guarantee to engage, educate and motivate our student audience.
