Council of Athletics and Recreation (CAR)


The Council of Athletics and Recreation (CAR) is one of the oldest continuing student governance bodies at the University of Toronto, with a history dating back more than 100 years. It has jurisdiction over the co-curricular sport and recreation programs on the St. George Campus, as well as university-wide programs such as Intramurals.

Composed of students, administrative staff, alumni, and facility users, CAR is responsible for overall athletics and recreation policy, including the allocation of funds to program areas, staffing policy, and rental and fees policy. CAR is a Standing Committee of the KPE Faculty Council.

Students enjoy constitutional parity on the 30-member Council, and participation in CAR is a fantastic means to get involved in the on-campus governance process.
