Harnessing the power of sport to build healthy, inclusive communities in a post-pandemic Canada.

Canada needs sport, and sport needs Canada.

Our ask

The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC), on behalf of our 60 member National Sport Organizations (NSOs), the 24 Multisport Services Organizations (MSOs) and seven Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institutes (COPSINs), are requesting $50 million per year in additional funding to support the national sport system. This new investment would represent the first increase to sport core funding in 15 years.

How this funding will support Canadians

Phase 1: Reintroduce Canadians to Sport

  • Rebuild capacity at NSOs to promote sport opportunities
  • Reduce costs of participation to improve access to sport
  • Strengthen club resources and expertise that ensure safe and inclusive programming for all Canadians
  • Help rebound from the decline in youth sport and physical activity during the pandemic

Phase 2: Building a Stronger Sporting Nation

  • Enable NSOs to develop programs that direct outreach to marginalized communities
  • Build new delivery capacity
  • Address participation barriers
  • Work directly with local clubs to educate and change policies and practice
  • Develop and showcase female and BIPOC athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers

Help keep Canadian sport strong
