From December 14th to 16th, the CWSA will be hosting a very special event in our nation's capital, to celebrate three important milestones in the history of wheelchair sport in Canada!
70 YEARS since the first activity in wheelchair sport started at Deer Lodge Rehabilitation Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1947.
50 YEARS since the Canadian Wheelchair Sports Association was officially incorporated in 1967.
40 YEARS since the Canadian Heritage Sport of ‘Murderball,’ or Wheelchair Rugby as it’s now known, was invented in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
As Canada is celebrating its 150th anniversary, CWSA is celebrating these three milestones in the history of wheelchair sport in Canada. We want to recognize our rich history and the significant achievements and contributions of the amazing people who made it all possible: the athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and partners.
JOIN US IN DECEMBER AS WE CELEBRATE THE ANNIVERSARY OF WHEELCHAIR SPORTS!
