Petro-Canada Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence (FACE) Program

Every year, Suncor Energy, through its Petro-Canada brand, provides 55 athlete and coach pairings with a grant of $10,000 by way of the Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence (FACE) program.

At the time of selection, the up-and-coming grant recipients receive limited to no funding from other agencies. The FACE program helps to enable these athletes to get one step closer to achieving their dreams. By providing equal funding to developing athletes and their coaches, the FACE program moves athletes towards national carded status in the short term and enhances coaching skills over the long term.

With Petro-Canada’s support of Canadian athletes on their long journey to the Olympic Games, they are continually demonstrating their commitment to fuelling athletes dreams to reach their full potential.
