Petro-Canada: Canadian Athlete Family Program
We know that behind every athlete is a team of people who support them. That’s why Petro-Canada has extended our contribution to help our athlete’s greatest fans, their families. We officially launched the Canadian Athlete Family Program (CAFP) in 2010 to help ensure the families of our athletes were taken care of during the Games. This first-of-its-kind initiative allowed over 500 athletes’ family members to watch their loved ones compete live at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games.
We are proud to continue this legacy of support through a ticketing program that will ensure the families of Canadian Olympians competing in London 2012, Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016 have the opportunity to watch their athletes compete live – and that Canadian athletes will have their own personal cheering section.
In addition to providing Olympic Games tickets, Petro-Canada also provides support for families through the dreambig Café within Canada Olympic House – home away from home for Canadian athletes and their parents.
