The Coaching Association of Canada and MONDO

Collaborating to create safe, positive sports environments for coaches and athletes in Canada.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Sport!

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), a leading organization in coach education and development nationwide, is proud to partner with MONDO, an internationally renowned company dedicated to engineering high-performance flooring solutions for athletes worldwide.

Through this partnership for the CAC Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Grant Program, the CAC and MONDO are working together to increase diversity among coaches in Canada and create inclusive, accessible sports environments.

CAC EDI Grant program, powered by MONDO

The CAC offers grants to eligible sport organizations (NSOs, PTCRs, and the COPSI Network) that organize and operate programs and initiatives to increase the number of coaches who identify with one or more of the CAC’s Priority Groups. In the CAC’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Policy, Priority Groups include “women, visible minorities, persons with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, and people that identify with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community." A PTSO is eligible to apply with the endorsement or in partnership with the NSO partner.

Program Goal: Support the development and implementation of projects by sport organizations to increase the diversity of coaches in Canada. 

Funding: Grant recipients will receive up to $1,500 to support their project and must contribute a minimum of $500 to the project. All project activities must be completed between April 1, 2024, and March 1, 2025, and a final report must be completed by March 1, 2025. 

Eligible projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Hosting a specialized introduction to coaching workshop or a relevant NCCP Workshop
  • Training new NCCP Coach Developers (example: training NCCP Coach Developers who can deliver an NCCP workshop in another language to a new community)
  • Developing a mentorship program
  • Developing a Community of Practice
  • Providing practical coaching experiences for coaches (example: attending a National Championships in a coach apprentice role)
