Funding by the Canadian Government (Sport Canada, Own the Podium, etc.) is extremely limited for amateur sport and particularly rugby.
Unlike many of the top competing teams on the IRB Rugby 7’s circuit, rugby in Canada is considered an amateur sport. Our athletes sacrifice much more than their competitors in order to compete for Canada.
To play and train full time at the elite levels, players often have to delay their education or careers. Unlike many countries that have centrally contracted players, Canada’s players end up travelling from all over to get to each tournament. That can marginalize the outcome of a game, as every day of training is crucial.
