For years Canada’s Para athletes have been asking why they don’t receive money for medals at the Paralympics, while Canadian athletes who win medals at the Olympics receive financial rewards.
On Thursday, Canada’s sports minister said that is soon to change.
In an exclusive interview with CBC Sports on Thursday in Santiago, Chile, ahead of the 2023 Parapan Am Games, Carla Qualtrough said that an announcement is coming.
“We’re going to get it done. I can’t scoop anybody so you’re not going to get any further details from me but I assure you that before Paris there will be some really exciting news on that front, as there should be,” Qualtrough said.
