2) Individual

Application Checklist:

  • Read the application categories above and ensure that your application satisfies all requirements before applying.
  • Organizations applying for grants must review the Actively Engaging Women and Girls: Addressing the Psycho-Social Factors report.
  • Organizations applying for grants must also select what stage of the LTAD framework their program will focus on.
  • Applications must be submitted electronically using the online application form.

Due to the volume of applications anticipated, CAAWS will not be able to respond to inquiries regarding the status of your application. Only applicants who are shortlisted or selected as recipients will receive a notification.

Note: Due to restrictions on CAAWS’ funding from Sport Canada, the WISE Fund is not intended to support physical activity projects and recreational initiatives.

This year our application is hosted on Google Forms. A copy of your application will be emailed to you after submission.
