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.
