Through grants to the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC), the Paralympic Foundation of Canada is committed to supporting the development of a sustainable Paralympic sport system so that Canadians with a disability are given the opportunity to choose sport and to become athletes.
Canadian athletes with a disability demonstrate at every level what is truly possible through sport. They are the finest examples, that with support – there are no limits. Through the development of sport for people with a disability and the success of future Paralympians, Canadians will collectively benefit as our nation continues to become more inclusive and accessible.
Established in 2015, the Foundation made its first charitable grant of $250,000 to the CPC in the 2016/17 fiscal year, funding Next Generation Coaching and the Para sport Jumpstart Fund. This was followed in the 2017/18 fiscal year with a grant to the CPC of $800,000 for the Next Generation Athlete Development initiative.
