Canadian Paralympic Committee allocates $200,000 in funding for Para sport organizations across Canada

The Canadian Paralympic Committee announced on June 10 it has granted $200,000 in funding through the 2019-20 Paralympic Sport Development Fund to support Para sport programming across the country.

The Paralympic Sport Development Fund is a grant program that annually supports initiatives that contribute to the development of athletes and coaches on a Paralympic pathway, with a goal of growing Para sport in Canada and ultimately helping to produce more top athletes.

""A total of 25 programs or organizations throughout Canada have received grants for the 2019-20 year, in amounts of up to $15,000. Funding supports developing athletes and programming and can cover areas such as recruitment, coaching, equipment, competition and club development, and training camps.

“Congratulations to all of the Paralympic Sport Development Fund recipients who are doing incredible work to grow Para sport in their communities,” said Karen O’Neill, CEO, Canadian Paralympic Committee. “It is so critical for the future of Paralympic sport in our country that we continue to nurture the development of athletes from the entry level up, and that requires resources and strong programming. The organizations supported by these grants are important parts of our sport system and the additional funding will help them enhance their programs.”
