Coaching Association of Canada announces 2022-2023 NSO Grant recipients

August 4, 2022

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022-2023 National Sport Organization (NSO) Grants.  

The CAC offers grants to National Sport Organizations (NSOs) that organize and operate programs and initiatives that provide opportunities for coaches. The initiatives supported by the 2022-2023 NSO Grant funding have a common goal of increasing the diversity of the coaching population, ensuring the sport community and sport environments are inclusive and accessible, and that the opportunities for coaches are equitable.   

In 2019, the CAC conducted a study on coaching diversity and inclusion initiatives launched by NSOs. The goal of this research was to identify how the CAC could best support their NSO partners in achieving our collective goals for equity in coaching. In response, the CAC expanded the NSO Grant program to increase support and resources available for program development and implementation.  

The CAC is pleased to support the initiatives of the ten recipients of the 2022-2023 NSO Grants: Equity, Diversity & Inclusion:
