Sport Legacies Research Collaborative Sport Legacies Research Collaborative
Welcome to the Sport Legacies Research Collaborative (SLRC) website! The SLRC was established by the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE) at the University of Toronto in 2010 with an expressed mandate for empirically and critically analyzing whether or not major sports events like the Pan American Games, Commonwealth Games, Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup and others, create enduring physical activity, sport, health and social integration impacts in the communities in which they are staged. SLRC aims to, through joint local, national and international research, empirically document and evaluate the legacies of major games and sports events on sports participation, physical cultures, social life and the built environment in host regions.
