NEXT Athlete Application Deadline:  Friday, September, 30, 2016 (5pm ET)

Click here to proceed to the CAN Fund Online Application


Applications will be accepted from any active national team athlete who is training to represent Canada internationally.

Winter, Summer, Able-bodied and Paralympic athletes can apply.  Please note that our first funding priority for this application is to support winter athletes training for 2018.  Summer athletes training for 2020 and any junior level athletes will be considered only after the senior level winter athletes have been considered first and pending the total funds raised.  You are still welcome to apply if you are a summer athlete or a junior athlete as applying is the only way you can ever be considered.  However, please be aware that our first focus is to fund as many senior level winter athletes as possible form this application as was the case with the summer athletes prior to Rio.

Each approved athlete recipient receives direct funding of $6,000.

There are two applications a year. Each application is a NEW application. If you have received the CAN Fund already this year you are still eligible to receive it again but must apply each time.
