Grants from the Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence (FACE) program are given to athletes who are striving to represent Canada at the Olympic or Paralympic Games but are not yet eligible for government funding. Each athlete and coach directly receives $5000 to help them with expenses related to training, travel for competitions, equipment and coach education.
