WHAT WE DO

Toronto Accessible Sports Council (TASC)

The Toronto Accessible Sports Council (TASC) was established in order to connect the Toronto disabled community with organizations and programs that deliver adapted sports and recreation. We help the diverse group of program deliverers better coordinate services through partnerships and collaboration while increasing awareness of their services to the disabled community.

The mission of TASC is to promote and facilitate accessible sport opportunities in Toronto. Our goals include promoting existing accessible sport and recreational opportunities, increasing communication among various accessible sport and recreational groups and advocating for the increased development of accessible sport and recreational programs and facilities.

VISION

To make Toronto a recognized leader in the promotion and hosting of accessible multi-sports and recreation while increasing participation and awareness within the disabled community.
