Working in partnership with like-minded organizations, TIRF co-creates opportunities that address systemic issues, gaps in services, and most importantly, meet the needs of young people.
As a values-driven sport-for-development organization, TIRF builds on evidence-based practices supported by regularly collected data to help grow the game and have a meaningful impact on the lives of young people.
MLSE Foundation is building community through rugby in Regent Park.
