Selections to HP Events are separate from selections to the High Performance Program (HPP). For each identified HP Event, CEC will select an EVENT TEAMS, which refers to the athletes selected to represent Canada at International and Continental Competitions.

CEC Staff Support
Due to budget constraints, and prioritization of athlete funding, it may not be possible to send CEC staff to all 2022 World Cup Events. The “CEC staff support” column indicates which events will have CEC staff in attendance. Athletes invited for events without staff support will receive remote support, however, will need to be self-reliant. Athletes should be mindful of this when accepting invitations to join WC event teams.
