Participate or Volunteer in your Community.
For 50 years, Special Olympics Canada has enriched the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability – of all ages and skill levels – through the transformative power of sport. Thousands of volunteers, coaches and officials across the country provide high-quality programming and services to Special Olympics athletes from age two to 70-plus, at both the recreational/community and competitive level.
