Canadian Sport Institute Ontario


Community Partner

Canadian Sport Institute Ontario (CSIO) is a non-profit organization committed to the pursuit of excellence by providing best-in-class programs, services, and leadership to high performance athletes, coaches, and National and Provincial Sport Organizations to enhance their ability to achieve international podium performances. Our team of expert staff deliver sport science, sport medicine, life services, and coaching and technical leadership support to help Canada win medals and strengthen the sport system in Ontario and Canada. CSIO is part of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network, working in partnership with the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, Own the Podium, and the Coaching Association of Canada.

Through this partnership, CSIO-affiliated athletes will have access to AthletesCAN’s resources, educational programs, and services offered to its membership of over 6,000 current and recently-retired Canadian senior national team athletes. In addition, AthletesCAN will begin piloting open office hours for CSIO-affiliated athletes at CSIO’s Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) location, so athletes can connect with the organization’s staff and/or Board of Directors directly on site.

CSIO-affiliated athletes will have the opportunity to register for and attend a pair of Town Halls at CSIO at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC), on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. ET. Each session will educate athletes on how AthletesCAN serves them as their national association (AthletesCAN 101), allow them to share feedback on the current state of the athlete experience within their respective sports, and facilitate networking with their peers. The events are part of a series of National Team Athlete Town Halls taking place this winter in collaboration with the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network (COPSIN).
