Expression of interest for Canadian senior national team athletes
In June 2022, the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport announced several new safe sport measures, including the creation of the Sport Canada Athlete Advisory Committee “to increase the representation of athletes in the sport system and to allow Sport Canada to obtain advice and guidance that reflect the realities of athletes in Canada.”
The Sport Canada Athlete Advisory Committee will provide advice and guidance to Sport Canada influenced through their lived experience as athletes in Canada. In turn, the Committee will encourage input from high performance athletes on topics important to them. This meaningful dialogue will inform Sport Canada’s policies and programs.
Over the last few months, Sport Canada has worked with a group of athlete representatives from AthletesCAN, the Canadian Olympic Committee Athletes’ Commission and the Canadian Paralympic Committee Athletes’ Council to consider the details behind the new committee.
This call-out is seeking applications from Canadian senior national team athletes for at-large athlete members to the new Sport Canada Athlete Advisory Committee.
To receive the application form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed application forms must be sent by March 12, 2023, at 23:59 EST.
