Petro-Canada is an ongoing supporter of Canada's Paralympic athletes. We fuel the dreams of the Canadian Paralympic Team in these ways:
- Aspiring Paralympic athletes and coaches are eligible to receive financial assistance through the Fuelling Athlete and Coaching ExcellenceTM Program. Learn more about FACETM
- We believe one of the best ways for Petro-Canada to support Canadian athletes is to help their biggest supporters — their families — be there to see them compete. That’s why in 2010 we launched the Canadian Athlete Family program, which ensured athletes' families were taken care of during the games. We are pleased to continue helping their families through a ticketing program that will ensure they have the opportunity to see their athletes compete at the London Games.
- Petro-Canada also provides support for families through the sponsorship of the Canada Paralympic House, a home away from home for Canadian Athletes and their parents.
- During the Paralympic Games, Petro-Canada hosts a special evening for their friends and family. Learn more about the friends and family program
- We recognize the honour of carrying our countries flag in the opening and closing ceremonies of Paralympic Games by awarding the James Worrall Flag Bearer to those athletes chosen to lead our country into the Paralympic stadium. Learn more about the James Worrall Flag Bearer Award
