Team Canada Program

The Team Canada Program is Orienteering Canada’s program for its top competitive orienteers and younger athletes that demonstrate potential to one day compete at international events for Canada. 

This program is the top development and performance pathway for Canadian orienteers in the Learn to Compete, Train to Compete, and Train to Win stages of our Long Term Athlete Development Model. 

The Team Canada Program has been designed with a focus on team and teamwork with the intent to foster a team culture in which Team Canada athletes and other members support and cheer for each other, push each other to be better, and are outstanding role models for the community. 

The Team Canada Program replaces the former High Performance Program which was in place from 2010 through 2020. 

In this new program, Team Canada athletes will be supported by a number of professional and semi-professional Team Canada Coaches as well as personal or club coaches and support personnel. Orienteering Canada staff and volunteers support individual athletes and the team as a whole through a variety of initiatives. 

As this is a new program, Orienteering Canada will be working to continually grow the support and size of the team in coming years. Many support structures and initiatives are actively being put in place that athletes might not immediately see the effect of. Many of these initiatives are described in Team Canada’s 2021 Strategic Plan which will be publicly released in the winter of 2021.
