Forum

Ottawa, ON

September 20 - 23, 2018  

The annual AthletesCAN Forum is the largest and most inclusive gathering of Canada’s national team athlete representatives outside of competition. It brings together Canada’s high performance athletes and sport leaders to learn about the sport system, develop leadership skills, share ideas and network through interactive workshops, seminars and presentations.

The 2018 AthletesCAN Forum will feature some of the country’s top sport leaders discussing crucial topics currently impacting the Canadian sport landscape.

*AthletesCAN will cover the costs for travel, meals and accommodation for one able-bodied and one disabled athlete representative from each sport to attend the Forum.

KidsCAN School Day is an opportunity for school children in the Forum’s host community to meet with national team athletes, try a variety of sports and learn about the importance of physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Since its inception in 2006, AthletesCAN’s KidsCAN School Day events have enabled over 370 national team athletes including Olympians and Paralympians, to reach over 24,000 school children from Whitehorse, Yukon to Fredericton, New Brunswick with messages of inspiration and determination.
