Support our athletes’ ongoing success

 

MITACS

Mitacs is a national, not-for-profit organization that has designed and delivered research and training programs in Canada for 19 years. Working with 60 universities, thousands of companies, and federal and provincial governments, Mitacs builds partnerships that support industrial and social innovation in Canada. One of these partnerships is with Own the Podium (OTP).

OTP’s Focus on Innovation:
The purpose of the current partnership between OTP and Mitacs is to build on the momentum gained through OTP’s high-performance sport research initiative supporting Olympic and Paralympic podium performances. A contribution to Canada’s success in Vancouver, London, Sochi, Rio, and PyeongChang was including talented graduate and postgraduate researchers in order to solve sport performance questions about how we could ”Own the Podium.“ These interns will be the conduit between the Canadian national teams, sport institutes, and universities to bring together a winning equation for future Olympic and Paralympic Games. The results will impact podium performances and will also contribute to healthy and active lifestyles across the country.

For Canada to be a world leader in high performance sport at the Olympic and Paralympic Games
