The Paralympic Foundation of Canada is the philanthropic arm of the Canadian Paralympic Committee and believes that sport should be accessible to all Canadians. To get there, everyone must work together to remove barriers to participation in sport.
The mission of the Paralympic Foundation of Canada is to ensure that the people, programs, and equipment are in place so that Canadians with a disability can be active in sport – in their communities and all the way to the Paralympic podium. The Paralympic Foundation of Canada provides financial support across three main areas:
1-Para Sport Development programs and community-based Para sport delivery organizations.
2-Next Generation Athlete Development programs for which the funding is matched by the Government of Canada. These programs support Canada’s Paralympic hopefuls who have the potential to excel in their sport at national and international competitions including the Paralympic Games. The funding provided to these programs are directed to five key areas: coaching, training environments, equipment, health & wellness, and sport science.
3-High Performance program which supports Para athletes who represent Canada at the highest levels.
