Aboriginal Apprentice Coach Program
The Aboriginal Apprentice Coach Program (AACP) is a partnership between the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC), Canada’s Provincial/Territorial Aboriginal Sport Bodies (PTASBs), Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representatives (PTCRs), the Canada Games Council (CGC), and the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC). It provides the opportunity for each province and territory to send two (2) coaches of Aboriginal ancestry to the Canada Games in apprenticeship roles. In 2022, the Canada Summer Games will be held in Ontario’s Niagara region.

Ensure Aboriginal apprentice coaches are prepared to handle a meaningful role during the Canada Games experience
