The Athlete Assistance Program (AAP) is a sport funding program that contributes to the pursuit of excellence.

Every year, we select 55 up-and-coming athletes and their coaches from across Canada to receive a FACE™, or Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence, grant.

Jordan's Principle is a child-first and needs-based principle that applies equally to all First Nations children resident on or off reserve. It ensures there is no denial or delay for First Nations children in receiving essential public services that are available to all other children by having the government department of first contact pay for the service.

Kidsport Winnipeg

KidSport provides grants to kids from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Manitoba provides grants of up to $500 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees. Clubs eligible for KidSport funding must be active members of their Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO). If you are not sure if the club you want to apply for is a member of their respective PSO, we recommend contacting them to find out. You can find a list of all the Provincial Sport Organizations on the Sport Manitoba website here.

Grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel, competitions, uniforms and camps are not eligible for funding.

The Manitoba Metis Federation is pleased to encourage and support Youth Participation in Sports, Recreation, Arts & Cultural Activities.

Saint John Jeux Canada Games Foundation

The purpose of the Foundation is to support athlete training so that they are able to pursue excellence in sport. Athletes must have the potential to be among the best in Canada, have demonstrated dedication to their sport, have special needs not covered through regular program funding, and must not be subsidized by national programs (i.e. hold a national card). It is the Foundation's policy to award grants for those specific sports approved for competition at future Canada Summer and Canada Winter Games.
