Sail Training International Canada Legacy Fund 2020/21 Open for Applications

September 21, 2020

Sail Training International is pleased to announce the Sail Training International Canada Legacy Fund 2020/21… 

We are delighted to once again be able to support organisations (preferably non-profit) to help deliver youth sail training programmes to young Canadians. Sail Training International in association with Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec has set aside a total fund of $25,000CAN to be awarded in grants. The deadline for applications for this year’s fund is Wednesday 18 November 2020.

The Canada Legacy Fund supports organisations that provide sail training programmes focused on helping 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 was 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.
