Sport Support Program

The Sport Support Program (SSP) supports the development of Canadian athletes and coaches. Funding is provided to eligible organizations in support of the goals of the Canadian Sport Policy. The funding is primarily focused on programs and services that have a direct impact on athletes and athlete development, and that provide children and youth with their first experience in sport.

Eligibility details

The primary beneficiaries of the Sport Support Program are national team athletes, coaches and other sport participants. Services and programs are provided to these individuals through direct support by the Program via contribution agreements with sport organizations, provincial and territorial government departments responsible for sport, and incorporated international sport organizations that support the principles and goals of the Canadian Sport Policy.
