Club Excellence

The Club Excellence program was designed to foster a network of healthy, strong and sustainable sport clubs and sport organizations across Canada. From 2007-2018 the program was led by the Club Excellence Cooperative, a collective of national sport organizations which in the latter years included Canoe Kayak Canada, Gymnastics Canada and the True Sport Foundation.

The ownership and management of the Club Excellence program transferred to the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport at the end of 2018, as good governance is one of the cornerstones of healthy community sport associations and goes hand-in-hand with a values-based, principle-driven community sport system.

The Club Excellence program is not currently active. As the CCES explores the best way forward for this program, we welcome your thoughts. If you believe that a program like Club Excellence would be beneficial to your organization, please complete this survey or share your ideas with us at
