Two more sporting organisations, Canada Soccer and the Canadian Powerlifting Union (CPU), have become members of the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC).
The two bodies were approved as new members by the CPC's existing membership at a special meeting on Wednesday (September 15).
"We are excited to welcome Canada Soccer and the Canadian Powerlifting Union to our membership," CPC President Marc-André Fabien said.
"Our membership base is so important to the CPC, to the sport community in Canada, and to the evolution of the Paralympic Movement across the country."
The "fantastic" Canada Soccer and the Canadian Powerlifting Union both feature "hard-working and talented people and athletes who are dedicated to growing their sports", Fabien added.
The CPC now has 27 members.
''The Canadian Powerlifting Union is looking forward to working with the Canadian Paralympic Committee to create opportunities for our Para powerlifting community,'' CPU vice-president Jeff Butt said.
''Our hope is to develop and grow our athletes numbers and create a professional platform for them to compete.
"A huge thank you to the CPC for accepting the CPU.
"We look forward to working toward a brighter future.''
Powerlifting currently features at both the Paralympics and Parapan American Games.
Canada Soccer governs 7-a-side Para-soccer, played by athletes with cerebral palsy or who are recovering from a stroke or brain injuries.
It is not on the Tokyo 2020 programme, but did feature at previous Paralymipcs and is a Parapan American Games discipline.
Canada Soccer President Steven Reed said the organisation "has a strong commitment to athletes of all abilities and welcomes the opportunity to become a member of the Canadian Paralympic Committee".
"We look forward to continuing to build on an exciting Para Soccer National Team program while strengthening our ties to the Canadian sport community through our membership to the Canadian Paralympic Committee," Reed added.
