Makadiff Sports is a provincewide not-for-profit organization created to encourage the growth and development of amateur sport through financial support of worthy innovative initiatives. 

Makadiff Sports is about “striving to make a difference to and through community sport.” This organization is founded on the belief that sport can be better, that status quo is not an option in light of the growing number of inactive, sedentary and disengaged citizens. 

Makadiff Sports wants to engage with stakeholders who share our desire to challenge current views and approaches in community sport development and pursue better outcomes. In particular, Makadiff Sports sees a compelling need to propel improvements in the early developmental and mass participation aspects of community sport. 

Makadiff Sports has corporately endorsed the following vision and mission statements:  

Our Vision: Citizens... actively & happily engaged in sport... for life!

Our Mission: To support innovative growth and development of community sport.


The Makadiff Sports Board of Directors is pleased to announce for 2021 a new initiative entitled 'The Community Sports Participation RESTART Grant Program'
