Although the CDSA works closely with various national sports organizations in Canada, the organization has its own Sport Committees and the human resources (team managers, coaches, volunteers, etc.) required to manage these committees. For the 2023-24 fiscal year, the following committees are active:

Canada Deaf Games
CDSA in collaboration with the Provincial Deaf Sports Association organizes the Canada Deaf Games (CDG). The CDG don’t have a ‘competition’ component like the World Championships or Deaflympics, but also a ‘participation’ component in a friendly atmosphere. They also offer a great opportunity to meet other Deaf and hard of hearing athletes from other provinces as well as to lead an active lifestyle. However, the most important goal of the Games is to have fun!
The next JSC will take place in Toronto (On) in 2024. For more details on the event, click here.
