There are several bursary and athlete assistance programs available to developing and elite cyclists. We will continually add references here.
Athlete Assistance Program
The Athlete Assistance Program (AAP), commonly called ‘Carding’, is a Sport Canada funding program that contributes to the pursuit of excellence. AAP support seeks to relieve some of the financial pressures associated with preparing for and participating in international sport and assists high-performance Canadian athletes to combine their sport and academic or working careers while training intensively in pursuit of world-class performances.
