High Performance and QUEST Program
Quest for Gold – Ontario Athlete Assistance Program 2017-2018 (OAAP) is funded by the Government of Ontario, through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport (MTCS), and operated through the Sport, Recreation & Community Programs Division. The overarching goal of the Quest for Gold – OAAP is directly related to the High Performance Sport goal of the Canadian Sport Policy – that Canadians are systematically achieving world-class results at the highest levels of international competition – by improving the performance and number of Ontario athletes performing at the national and international level, thereby contributing to the improved performance of Canada at international competitions. .
Specific objectives of the program are:
a) To help athletes continue their pursuit of athletic excellence at the highest levels of national and international competition;
The intent of the OAAP is to provide funding to individual athletes that have been identified as next generation national team athlete based on their demonstrated commitment to high performance sport, allowing them to continue to pursue athletic excellence at the highest levels of national and international competition. Only those athletes that meet the required minimum performance standard detailed in this Selection Criteria will be considered for this program. Ideally an athlete will first receive a Quest for Gold “Ontario Card” for 1 to 3 years, which will allow them to train towards the goal of a national team position in subsequent years. Once an Ontario athlete reaches the national level and becomes a recipient of Sport Canada’s carding program, they become eligible for the Quest for Gold “Canada Card”. Athletes who are not planning to train towards this level of competition should not apply for this program.
For full details, please refer to the 2017-2018 Quest for Gold Selection Criteria Document (Pending Ministry Approval) and the 2017-2018 Quest for Gold Program page.
Information on the 2017-2018 HPDP Program will be posted as they become available.
