Canadian Heritage

The Government of Canada is committed to supporting Canadians in getting active, from the playground to the podium. Support for sport gets young people moving while bringing communities across the country together in the spirit of healthy competition.

Today, the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, announced $4,907,400 in funding for Freestyle Canada for 2022-23, including $249,000 toward the hosting of the 2023 Federation International de Ski (FIS) Moguls World Cup in Val St-Côme, Quebec, from January 24 to 28.

The investment will provide the organization with the financial means to conduct its daily operations, promote the sport of freestyle skiing among all Canadians, support high-performance athletes competing at the national and international levels, and ensure a safe sport environment for all athletes across Canada. As the single largest investor in Canada’s sport system, the Government of Canada is proud of the investments it makes to support Canadian athletes, the national and multisport organizations that support them, and the hosting of international sport events.
