The Government of Canada is committed to supporting Canadians in getting active from the playground to the podium. Concrete support for sport inspires young people to be healthy while also 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 $1,751,100 in funding for Judo Canada for 2022-23, including $12,500 for safety in sport.
The investment will provide the organization with the financial means to conduct daily operations, promote judo among all Canadians and support high-performance athletes competing at the national and international levels. The funding includes $50,000 to host the 2022 IBSA Pan-American Judo Championships in Edmonton on December 9-11, 2022.
The safety in sport investment is part of the government’s ongoing work with sport organizations to ensure a safe sport environment for athletes across Canada.
As the largest investor in Canada’s sport system, the Government of Canada is proud of its support for Canadian athletes, the national and multisport organizations that support them, and initiatives to host international sport events.
