Canada’s international single sport hosting program tops $89M
The Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance (CSTA) has published a new update to its report tracing the impact of the Federal Policy for Hosting International Sport Events. The report outlines the sports and provinces that have successfully bid for and hosted events since 2008. Updated to March 2018, the data shows that 718 international single sport events qualified for and received a total of $89.7 million in federal funding over the past decade. The events range from world championships to recurring world-cup style events held annually, but excludes multi-sport events such as the Olympics and the Canada Games.
