Team Canada Olympic Day Grant

Team Canada Olympic Day Grant
The Team Canada Olympic Day Grant provides funding to increase access to sport in schools while also giving athletes the opportunity to inspire students through their stories.
Athletes have the opportunity to practice tenacity, dedication, and perseverance on a daily basis. They understand what it’s like to face challenges and adversity. By sharing these experiences with students, through the principles of sport, students can connect their own lives to the Olympic Values of respect, friendship and excellence more easily.
The applicant must be an individual who works for a provincially registered school/board/division in Canada including: elementary, intermediate, or secondary publicly funded schools, first nation, metis, and Inuit elementary, intermediate, secondary schools and educational programs, and educational institutions in Canada. Please note: schools are permitted to submit more than one application, however in order to distribute funds equitably our ability to award multiple grants to the same school is limited.
A total of 5 grants of $5,000 are available for Canadian schools across the country to help students play and stay in sport. Successful schools will also receive a 90-minute Team Canada athlete speaking engagement to inspire students to participate in sport and develop the skills to thrive and succeed in their daily lives. The COC will be photographing and recording the athlete speaking engagements to share highlights on Team Canada’s channels on June 23, to encourage more schools to empower their students to play and stay in sport and celebrate Olympic Day.
