Enabling Athletes to Reach the Podium

The Canadian Paralympic Committee is a non-profit, private organization with 27 member sports organizations dedicated to strengthening the Paralympic Movement. The Canadian Paralympic Committee's vision is to be the world's leading Paralympic nation. Its mission is to lead the development of a sustainable Paralympic sport system in Canada to enable athletes to reach the podium at the Paralympic Games.

By supporting Canadian high performance athletes with a disability and promoting their success, the CPC inspires all Canadians with a disability to get involved in sport through programs delivered by its member organizations.

“Support from government and donors such as Power Corporation is critical to the operation of the Canadian Paralympic Committee and is helping us reach our goal of making Canada the leading Paralympic nation in the world,” said François Robert, Executive Director, Partnerships, Canadian Paralympic Committee

When our athletes with a disability find international success at Paralympic Games, it inspires all Canadians with a disability to become involved in sports and reach their individual potential.
