      The CAN Fund athlete application will be available on the CAN Fund website for athletes to begin submitting their applications starting Tuesday September 13, 2016 at 10am EST.   The application deadline is Friday, September, 30, 2016 at 5pm EST.  Applications will be accepted from any active national team athlete who is training to represent Canada Internationally.  Winter, Summer, Able-bodied and Paralympic athletes can apply.  

      The application will be available in French and English for ONLINE submission or direct mail starting Tuesday September 13, 2016.  You can access the application on the CAN Fund website via this link http://www.canadianathletesnow.ca/applicationor  www.MyCANFund.ca (under Athlete Info-Applications).

      Also, posted on the CAN Fund website in both French and English will be important information, tips and instructions relating to the application that will help you with the application process.  Please make sure you read that information carefully and in its entirety before you begin your application.

      IMPORTANT: Each application is a new application so in order to be considered for funding for the Friday, September 30, 2016 (5pm EST) application deadline you must apply to CAN Fund by the deadline.  Each approved athlete recipient receives direct funding of $6,000 per application so up to $12,000/year.  

      Please note that our first funding priority for this application is to support WINTER sport athletes training for 2018.  Summer athletes training for 2020 and any junior level athletes will be considered only after the senior level winter athletes have been considered first and pending the total funds raised.  The number of athletes CAN Fund is able to support each application all depends on the funds we raise each application cycle.  Our goal is always to help the greatest number of athletes as possible.  Summer or junior athletes are still welcome and invited to apply as applying is the only way you can ever be considered.  However, please note that our first focus is to fund as many senior level winter athletes training for PyeongChang as possible from this application. 

      If you have any questions about the application and process please don’t hesitate to ask we can be reached at 416-487-4442 or 1-866-937-2012 [email protected]
