Inclusive Fitness Handbook

This OneAbility Handbook was created as a resource to support certified fitness professionals while working with clients with different disabilities and various barriers to physical activity. The disabilities profiled in this handbook (amputation, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and vision impairment) were selected to fill the gap in pre-existing resources. As such, some prevalent disabilities, including spinal cord injuries, were not included in this handbook as other valuable resources currently exist. Please refer to the Appendix of this handbook for a list of resources for working with individuals with spinal cord injuries.

Physical Activity and Physical Literacy for All

SPAPL Project:
The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is a multicomponent, school-based health promotion initiative for B.C. elementary schools. The project will provide both in-person and online professional development opportunities to build the capacity of B.C. elementary school educators to increase their confidence and competence in delivering quality physical activity and physical literacy opportunities at school, and support links to mental well-being. The project is being prototyped across a diverse subset of school districts and schools in British Columbia.
Physical Activity and Physical Literacy for All (Diverse Abilities):
Throughout British Columbia, generalist educators can be found in the gymnasium leading their students through varying physical activities. The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is aimed at removing potential barriers for generalist elementary educators through increased professional development opportunities and providing easy, user friendly, and accessible resources to support them in delivering on the curriculum. This training is one of many, designed to equip educators with the knowledge and confidence to increase physical activity participation and develop physical literacy with their students.


A Story-Based Practical Resource for Coaches and Coach Educators in Disability Sport

An interdisciplinary team of researchers (with expertise in quality participation and coaching in disability sport) have produced a creative nonfiction (i.e., an evidence-informed short story) titled ‘From One Coach to Another: A Story of Transformational Coaching in Disability Sport’. This learning tool was created for and can be used by disability sport coaches in entry level and developmental coaching domains. The tool is meant to demonstrate and provide information about coach behaviours that facilitate quality experiences for athletes with disabilities. Coaches play a key role in shaping the sport experiences of athletes with a disability, representing an important point of intervention for enhancing the quality of athletes’ experiences in disability sport. Evidence-informed learning tools for coaches of athletes with disabilities are necessary not only for coach education, but for the potential to impact athletes’ experiences and outcomes. View the short story and accompanying question guide below.

A Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder

The Canadian Disability Participation Project was approached by and partnered with Ausome Ottawa to produce A Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Blueprint is tailored to recreational sport and physical activity programs for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder and introduces coaches and volunteers to key concepts that underpin quality participation (i.e., the building blocks of quality participation) to better facilitate quality sport experiences for young athletes with autism spectrum disorder. The Blueprint provides evidence-based strategies for building quality participation in such programs. Links to the Resources: Blueprint: Bulletin:

Aide Canada

AIDE and partners have created many toolkits, webinars and infographics covering a wide range of topics from education, to housing and beyond specifically for BC.

Below is a link to the Overview created:


Other helpful resources included on the website are

  • a free, nation-wide lending library
  • a database of articles and research summaries focused on autism and/or intellectual disability 
  • a national map of autism and/or intellectual disability programs and services
  • a calendar of events, including on-demand streaming of past recorded webinars, 

and several other features that we hope will be very valuable to our community. The direction and applications of the site were developed after many months of community consultations, quantitative surveys and focus groups with autistic self-advocates, parents, family members, service providers and educators.

Everybody Moves Resource Hub

BC Alliance for Healthy Living and the Physical Activity for Health Collaborative have launched the much anticipated EverybodyMoves Resource Hub!

The Hub is a one-stop shop for sport and recreation leaders who want to ensure physical activity is as inclusive and accessible as possible.

Physical activity is vital for one’s health, and yet we know many British Columbians face visible and invisible barriers to regular activity.

For example, nearly half of adults with disabilities don’t get any aerobic physical activity, and people identifying as lesbian, gay and bisexual of all ages are less likely to participate in sports.

The consequences for not being physically active are serious. People who don’t engage in physical activity are more likely to have increased mental and emotional health issues, decreased immune function and inflammation, and are more at risk for developing chronic illnesses.

BC clearly needs solutions to get us all active, and the EverybodyMoves Resource Hub is part of the answer! Read more here.
