Who We Are

Our Mission

To generate support to meet the technical, scientific, medical and coaching needs of Canada’s high performance sport system and assist Canada’s athletes in becoming ambassadors for sport, healthy living and the pursuit of excellence across the nation.

Our Vision

To inspire Canadians, athletes and other stakeholders to achieve the ultimate podium success at the Olympic Games for Canada and, as a result, create an elevated sense of pride and unity among all Canadians.

Canadian Olympic Foundation Manifesto

We believe that winning matters
Olympic medals increase national pride and solidarity

We believe in the next generation
By investing in the next generation of athletes now,
Canada will have sustainable podium success for future olympic games

We believe in the pursuit of personal excellence
It is the ambition of all people to pursue their personal
Levels of excellence;  athletes should not have to compromise
Their education to pursue their athletic goals

We believe that sport builds leaders
Those who participate in sport lead by example, demonstrating
The importance of commitment, determination and teamwork;
They also lead by involving others in the olympic experience and
Inspiring them to reach their full potential
