Application Process:

The 2021-2022 Application Form is NOW AVAILABLE!

Applications will be accepted until 11:59pm ET on October 29, 2021. Grants will be awarded shortly after.

Who can apply for funding?

Applicants for this grant need to be Canadian businesses or organizations. Not a business? Don’t worry! Individuals, or groups of individuals can still apply! You just need to be affiliated with a local business (e.g. your local climbing gym) in order to apply. Just get a letter of support from the affiliated facility or organization, and you’re set! Projects need to focus on indoor rock climbing. Projects must also be able to be completed safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although not required, projects led by women and/or racialized individuals will get special consideration.

What do I need to report back to the CEC?

All projects should have some way of measuring their success. Whether you have successfully run a workshop, trained new routesetters, or developed a program, you’ll have to report back what you’ve done, how many people have participated and how you’ve spent the budget. You can get your participants to fill out satisfaction surveys to show your impact, or get feedback from the community on what you have done. But be sure to include how you will measure success, and how your project has improved representation in your community. A formal report will be required to be sent to the CEC by March 31, 2021, telling us about your project, how you implemented it, any challenges you faced and how you’ve measured your success.

Today, the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games proposed to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to add Para Climbing to the 2028 Paralympic Sport Program. That is one step closer to inclusion of our sport in the Paralympic Games!
