Application Process:

Applications will be accepted until 11:59pm ET on September 19, 2021. Grants will be awarded by October 4, 2021.

Who can apply for funding?

Applicants for this grant need to be Canadian businesses or organizations. Not a business? Don’t worry! Individuals, or groups of individuals can still apply! You just need to be affiliated with a local business (e.g. your local climbing gym) in order to apply. Just get a letter of support from the affiliated facility or organization, and you’re set! Projects need to focus on indoor rock climbing. Projects must also be able to be completed safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although not required, projects led by women will get special consideration.

What do I need to report back to the CEC?

All projects should have some way of measuring their success. Whether you have successfully run a workshop, trained new routesetters, or developed a program, you’ll have to report back what you’ve done, how many people have participated and how you’ve spent the budget. You can get your participants to fill out satisfaction surveys to show your impact, or get feedback from the community on what you have done. But be sure to include how you will measure success, and how your project has improved gender equity in your community. A formal report will be required to be sent to the CEC by March 31, 2021, telling us about your project, how you implemented it, any challenges you faced and how you’ve measured your success.

Day 2 of Workd champs today

Boulderers center stage today.

@rileyclimbs and Madison Fischer in Women's and @zach_richardson_ and @guymcnamee in Men's.

Maddie grabbed 2 tops and 3 zones to post 25th, her best IFSC Senior result to date and just outside semis. Riley managed to find 1 zone in her first ever IFSC Senior Competition to finish 71st. She will undoubtedly learn from the experience and be back stronger in the future.

Guy snagged 51st place in the men's with 1 top and 3 zones. A decent result for his IFSC Senior event. Zach couldn't find his usual form and finished 65th with 2 Zones. We know he'll be back 🙂

So nice to see the Maple Leaf on the World Stage!!
