Covid-19 Vaccination Policy Update

In November 2021, the CCSAM Board of Directors approved a policy requiring all attendees of CCSAM Events to provide proof of vaccination in order to participate.

The Covid-19 Vaccination Policy – Event Attendance & Participation:

  • applies to all participants attending CCSAM Events.
  • All participants are to provide proof of vaccination.
  • CCSAM Events are those published in the CCSAM Event Calendar.
  • Participants include athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and spectators.

This Policy is intended to encourage, support and maximize Covid-19 vaccination rates and protect the health of all participants at CCSAM events this season. 

In April 2022, the CCSAM Board of Directors reviewed and decided to uphold this policy. However, at this time and until further notice, participants will not be asked to provide proof of vaccination.

Please refer to our Policies page for more information.

Canadian Sport Policy Renewal

The Canadian Sport Policy is set to be renewed in February 2023. The renewed sport policy will help identify Canadian sport priorities. It will also guide how federal, provincial and territorial governments advance sport for the next 10 years (2023 to 2033). Through this survey, you’ll help renew the Canadian Sport Policy.
The Canadian Sport Policy helps to guide policy, program and funding decisions. To make sure the new policy reflects what Canadians want for sport, it’s important we hear from valued, diverse stakeholders, from across the country.
Your perspective is important. If you’re interested in policy development, your insights can help us to set a renewed course for sport in Canada.
To find background information about the Canadian Sport Policy, visit the Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC) website. The background information includes the existing policy, a summary evaluation of the existing policy, and an environmental scan. 
This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

National Winter Sports Development Association (NWSDA) Request for Club Proposals

A financial assistance opportunity aimed at supporting the development of internationally competitive Canadian athletes in cross-country skiing.

The “National Winter Sports Development Association” (NWSDA) was established through the foresight and donation of the Disbrow family to assist cross-country ski clubs with proven ability to develop competitive skiers and coaches based on long-term development planning. The NWSDA has a Board of Directors which decides on the direction and allocation of the NWSDA grants.

Nordiq Canada manages and administrates the annual funding allocations of the NWSDA Board. Previous selection for club support strongly considered National competitive performances, as determined by results at the annual Canadian Ski Championships. While still relevant, prioritization has shifted to sustaining quality programs and enhancing the competitive sport development in Canada at the club level.
