The Athlete Assistance Program (AAP) is a sport funding program that contributes to the pursuit of excellence through its contribution to improved Canadian athlete performances at major international sporting events, enabling athletes to combine their sport and academic or working careers while training intensively in pursuit of world-class performances.
Athletes who are approved for funding and are financially supported through the AAP are referred to as Carded Athletes. AAP support is referred to as Carding.
As stated in the Sport Canada AAP Policies and Procedures, “NSOs may nominate Eligible Athletes for senior or development cards according to their published NSO approved AAP compliant carding criteria up to the maximum of the monetary value of the senior card quota.” Taekwondo Canada has received a quota of seven cards with a total monetary value of $126,000.
Review of nominated athletes and final approval of the athletes are validated by Sport Canada and are in accordance with Sport Canada AAP Policies and Procedures. The list of approved athletes can be seen here:
