Coaching Association of Canada

2022 Petro-Canada™ Sport Leadership sportif conference 

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) is excited to host the first ever hybrid edition of the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference (SLS22) and Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Awards Gala. From November 10 – 12, delegates are welcome to attend in-person at The Westin Ottawa Hotel or to tune in remotely from across the country! 

SLS22 conference theme: A Tribute to Perseverance 

Over the past two years, we have witnessed incredible demonstrations of resilience, courage, and empathy within the world of sport. Sport has been a vital part of the recovery plan in Canada as we navigated the return to normalcy after disruption, and it continues to be a source of connection and healing for so many people across the country.  

SLS22 is a time to recognize the loss and adversity we have faced, to commemorate how far we’ve come, and to celebrate the opportunities that lie before us. The conference theme this year honours the perseverance at the heart of this journey and the passion required to drive sport forward.
