There is also a recognition that coaching at the Canada Games requires considerable investment for coaches. To address these recognitions, the Province of PEI has established a Home Team PEI Coach Development Fund.

The Fund will provide funding for individuals through their Provincial Sport Organization to support Competition Development Certification and Enhanced coach training opportunities for coaches in the 2022 and 2023 Canada Games cycles as well as funding to PSO’s for innovative approaches to develop their coaches.
