Sail Training International Canada Legacy Fund 2019/20 Open for Applications

September 10, 2019

Sail Training International is pleased to announce the launch of the Sail Training International Canada Legacy Fund 2019/20… 

Once again, we are proud to continue to support organisations (preferably non-profit) to help deliver youth sail training programmes to young Canadians. Sail Training International has set aside a total fund of $25,000CAN to be awarded in grants to successful applicants. The deadline for applications for this year’s fund is Monday 28 October 2019.

The Canada Legacy fund offers support to organisations that provide sail training programmes that look to reach disadvantaged young Canadians aged between 14-25 years. These programmes will offer one or more of the following:

  • Improve trainees personal, social and/or educational development
  • Enhance international friendship and understanding
  • Demonstrate replicable models of innovation and good practice in sail training

Following the success of the Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, the Canada Legacy Fund has been set up with generous support from Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec. The Canadian Legacy Fund is under the management of the Sail Training International Board of Trustees, and is administered by the designated Legacy Fund Committee.

The Canada Legacy Fund Committee is made up of two Sail Training International Trustees, one representative of Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec and advised by a representative of Tall Ships Canada Association.

You can find out all the information you need to apply for funding using the Canada Legacy Fund Guidance Notes below. If you need any further assistance, or have any other questions about the fund, please direct enquiries to alison.short@sailtraininginternational.org.
