They understand the impact that world-class training, sport medicine, sport science and lifestyle services and support have on our country’s top athletes and coaches. The relentless day-in-day-out commitment of our athletes must be matched with world-class support to ensure they can continue to push for the podium whenever and wherever they compete. The Government of Canada continues to make that commitment.
As the single largest investor in Canada’s sport system, the federal government’s support to the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network is only one of many ways that they support our athletes.
Through their ongoing support to more than 80 national and multi-sport organizations including the Sport Institute Network, direct monthly support to over 1,800 high-performance athletes to help with their training, living and education expenses and the funds they provide to help host more than 60 international championships in Canada each year, the Government of Canada underscores their belief in our athletes and the impact they have in inspiring all Canadians – especially our young people – to realize the benefits of a lifelong love of sport and physical activity.

The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba acknowledges that our offices are situated on Treaty 1 Land, the original lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Ojibway-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
The Treaties made on these territories are respected by all those who work at CSCM. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past that were made. In a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation, we dedicate ourselves to continually move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities for ongoing education and learning.
We understand that acknowledging this truth, though important, is only a small part in cultivating the strong relationships we strive to build and maintain with Indigenous communities. We continue to work towards this, with particular attention being paid to the sport specific calls to action #87-91 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We recognize we are not the first to live on this land, and thank these Nations for allowing us access to their land and water.
