Generous Canadians who make an annual donation of at least $500 per year become members of the Paralympic Foundation of Canada’s Circle of Champions.

“When I look at the disability world more broadly, it’s not about high-performance sport, it’s about accessibility and inclusiveness. I think that the world has gotten a lot better than it was, but it still has a long way to go. From what I’ve seen through sport though, in many cases the most accessible cities around the world are ones where they’ve held the Paralympic Games. A big part of what the Paralympics has done for people with a disability goes well beyond the athletes and the Paralympics themselves.” Jim Westlake

PFC is grateful for the $1 million+ donations from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, Pfizer Canada, and Jim and Deb Westlake – the largest private donation in foundation history.
