Carded athletes asked to speak out


If you are a carded athlete and missed Sports Canada’s launch of the Status of the Athlete Survey last September, not to worry. The survey is still open and Sport Canada wants to hear back from as many athletes as possible.

The survey is designed to profile the life of a carded athlete in Canada – their training, education, employment, and social and economic aspects of their lives. The research will update information collected regularly since 1990 and is designed to help develop policies and programs that are responsive to the needs of Canadian athletes and reflect the realities of international sport.

Sport Canada is encouraging carded athletes who have not done so to participate in the country-wide project. The survey can be found at www.ekos.com/athlete
