  • 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 summer athletes training for 2020. Winter athletes training for 2022 and any junior level athletes will be considered only after the senior level summer athletes have been considered first and pending the total funds raised. You are still welcome to apply if you are a winter 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 summer athletes as possible from this application as was the case with the winter athletes prior to Pyeongchang. 
  • Each approved athlete recipient receives direct funding of $6,000. 
  • There are 2 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.
