"To support and enhance Canada’s high performance coaches and technical leaders in their inspired pursuit of excellence in Olympic and Paralympic sport" 

The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC), Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), Sport Canada (SC) and Own the Podium (OTP) work in partnership to support Canada’s high performance coaches and technical leaders in the pursuit of Olympic and Paralympic podium success.

Pursuit is designed around the Canadian High Performance Sport Strategy three pillars:

  • People (‘Canada’s high performance coaches and technical leaders’): Pursuit inspires passion in leadership excellence, grounded in trust, resilience, and wellness.
  • Systems (‘Olympic and Paralympic sport’): Pursuit is a world leader in high performance growth, with an evidence informed approach to continuous learning.
  • Culture (‘support and enhance in their inspired pursuit of excellence’): Pursuit fosters a Canadian culture of safety and excellence, with uncompromising values, ethics, and integrity.
Pursuit aims to recruit, refine and retain Canada’s high performance coaches and technical leaders:
  • To recruit those who embrace a Canadian culture of excellence.
  • To refine personal and professional knowledge to achieve excellence.
  • To retain expertise through an engaged community which fosters podium success.
