The Government of Prince Edward Island recognizes that coaching is one of the key pillars to a successfully developed sport system. 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 Team PEI Canada Games Coach Development Program. The program will provide funding for individuals through their Provincial Sport Organization to support Competition Development Certification and Enhanced coach training opportunities for coaches in the Canada Games.


  • Provincial Sport Organizations must be the applicant and be in good standing with the Province of PEI
  • Coaches named in the application must be endorsed by their PSO and currently named as the Canada Games Coach or pool of coaches (some sports have coaches selected based on team results closer to Canada Games, example Curling. We will take this into consideration)
  • Coaches named must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the PEI sport system
  • Coaches must be permanently residing in PEI


I. Coach Certification Funding

a. Up to a maximum of $1000 per coach per fiscal year (April 1 - March 31) will be available to cover course registration fees (workshop training) or for the completion of certification process (portfolio + evaluation) and travel to these events if required.

b. Coach Certification funds are available for NCCP Training in the Competition Development Pathway, unless it can be demonstrated the course work is necessary as part of the coach requirements as set out in the sport’s Canada Games Technical Package.

II. Professional Development Grant

Up to a maximum of $750 per coach per fiscal year to support professional development opportunities will be available. The Professional Development funding is restricted for coaches that have completed their Competition Development Certification or coach requirements as set out in the sport’s Canada Games technical Package.


  • Please note, grants will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis until the approvals match the yearly budget.
  • Multiple Funds cannot be used for the same event, for example, an NCCP Sport Specific Workshop must pick Coach Certification Grant per coach or PSO Development Grant but not both.
  • Canada Games Sports will have priority for all funding.
  • Applications are now being excepted and reviewed monthly
