Islanders are encouraged to show their love and support for sport on Saturday, November 21 which is Sports Day in Canada, says Health and Wellness Minister Doug Currie.
“Sport contributes greatly to healthy development, well-being and quality of life in our communities,” said Minister Currie. “I encourage Islanders of all ages to take in some of the many events happening across the province.”
RBC Sports Day in Canada takes place in communities from coast to coast. Local organizations, communities and schools across the country are holding events to celebrate the power of sport and building community.
