Territorial Sport Organizations/Sports Clubs

A Territorial Sport Organization (TSO) is a volunteer group that represents a sport that has sufficient members throughout Nunavut and meets Sport Nunavut's requirements for territorial status.

A Nunavut Sport Club (NSC) is a sport association that does not meet the eligibility criteria as a Territorial Sport Organization. However, it is a registered non-for-profit sport association in good standing with the Registrar of Societies. Usually, a sport does not meet the criteria based on the number and distribution of its membership.
