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 $889,031 in funding for Luge Canada for 2022-23, including $20,000 for safety in sport.
The investment will provide the organization with the financial means to conduct its daily operations, promote luge among all Canadians and support high-performance athletes competing at the national and international levels. The funding includes $100,000 to host the Eberspächer Luge World Cup in Whistler, British Columbia, on December 9-10, 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 investments in support of Canadian athletes, the national and multisport organizations that support them, and the initiatives to host international sport events.
