OTTAWA – Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee applauded the Harper Government for its ongoing support of Canadian High Performance athletes, coaches and national sport federations with the continuation of stable core funding delivered through Economic Action Plan 2013.

“Today shows that Harper Government truly understands that sport is vital to Canadian society, as well as what it takes to put Canadian athletes on the podium,” said Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee. “It takes long-term, committed core funding to the people and organizations that need it most: athletes, coaches, and national sport federations. On behalf of Canada’s Olympic family, I would like to thank Prime Minister Harper, Finance Minister Flaherty and Minister of State for Sport Gosal for their continuing commitment to Canadian sport.”

As it did in 2012, the Economic Action Plan 2013 maintains record levels of support for programs that directly impact athletes and their development, demonstrating the Government’s commitment to building the capacity of Canada’s High Performance sport community. As the single-largest funder of sport in Canada, the Government’s core funding directly to the High Performance sport community is critical to ensuring that Canadian athletes have the right support to compete and win on the world stage.

“We sincerely thank the Harper Government for staying steadfast to their commitment to ensure that Canadian athletes have the tools they need to keep delivering for Canada on the global field of play,” added Aubut.

Ninety-eight per cent funded by the private sector, the Canadian Olympic Committee works to provide funding to Canadian High Performance athletes that is complimentary to the Government’s core funding, an action which runs in direct tandem with the personal recommendations of Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. In addition to our valued government and sport partners, the COC is proud to be working with our outstanding marketing partners to benefit Canadian athletes.
