Coaching Association of Canada
Alberta Women in Sport Leadership

Mentorship is a proven strategy in the recruitment, retention, development, and advancement of women in the workforce. With the support of Sport Canada funding and the federal government priority of gender equity in sport by 2035, the Coaching Association of Canada is enhancing its existing Women in Coaching program to include an Enhanced Female Mentorship program. The Enhanced Female Mentorship Program will allow CAC to expand its contribution to female high-performance coaches by enhancing the development of select female mentee coaches through the support of a distinguished female mentor. 


  • To support and develop high-performance female coaches within the sport community, including colleges and universities. 
  • Develop qualified mentors for the CAC, the NCCP partnership and the larger sport community including colleges and Universities.


All questions regarding the Enhanced Female Mentorship Program can be directed to Andrea Johnson, Project Coordinator, Diversity & inclusion at
