In April 2008, the Government of Canada announced its new Federal Policy for Hosting International Sport Events, which provides the foundation for a proactive and strategic approach for bidding and hosting international sport events in Canada. Many provinces and territories in Canada are also following suit by developing their own hosting policies.
These hosting programs recognize the growing interest in hosting sporting events not only as a stimulus to sport development, but also as an economic and community development tool. CSTA supports a strategic approach for bidding and hosting sporting events in order to maximize resources, build capacity for Canada’s sport system and optimize the benefits (social, economic, cultural) derived from hosting sport events in Canada.
