2023 AthletesCAN Forum

AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes, is proud to announce that Vancouver will host the 2023 AthletesCAN Forum and 46th Canadian Sport Awards from Sept. 8-10.

This marks the return of AthletesCAN’s annual signature event to an in-person format, after being held virtually for the last three years. It will also be the first Forum held in Western Canada since the 2014 edition in Calgary and the first one held in British Columbia and Greater Vancouver since Richmond B.C. hosted in 2009. In light of significant reforms announced last month across the Canadian sport system by Minister of Sport, the Hon. Pascale St-Onge, this year’s Forum theme will focus on Athlete Governance.

The annual AthletesCAN Forum is the largest and most inclusive gathering of Canada’s national team athlete leaders outside of competition. It brings together Canada’s high-performance athletes and sport leaders to learn about the sport system, develop leadership skills, share ideas and network through interactive workshops, seminars and presentations.

Registration for the 2023 AthletesCAN Forum is now open, with attendance targeted at Athlete Representatives from each of the 68 sports eligible for AthletesCAN membership.
