ABOUT CAN FUND
CAN Fund is a not-for-profit organization created to fill a funding gap and give our Canadian athletes (summer, winter, able-bodied, and Paralympic) the financial support they need to train and compete for Canada. Where CAN Fund makes a significant impact is in the years leading up to the Games – the years when no one is watching, or cheering, or even aware of our athletes and their journey to be the best in the world. The majority of our athletes are paying for equipment, travel to competitions and training camps, coaching, proper nutrition, extra physiotherapy, and team fees that range from $1000 to $27,000. Since 2003, CAN Fund has raised over $40 million and supported 80% of the athletes representing Canada in Athens, 2004 to the recent 2022 Winter Games.
