A successful Parasport system begins with increased awareness and recruitment of participants at the grassroots Parasport level; a sport cannot have a podium full of athletes without a playground full of participants. In order to facilitate increased participation of Canadians with a disability at the ‘playground’ level, the CPC has the Para-Equipment Fund and the Recruitment Program Fund.
The granting processes are intended to support the creation of a new program, or go towards the expansion of an existing successful initiative providing a positive introductory Parasport experience.
