As part of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network (COPSI Network), INS Québec can host athletes from the rest of the Canada passing through Québec. These athletes must be identified by their federation and registered to another member of the COPSI Network.
Depending on their status, athletes can access some basic services in Québec. Athletes must notify the INS in advance of their stay, indicating the duration of the stay and services needed.
Occasional groups: For training camps, camp organizers will negotiate services in advance with the INS Québec sports advisor and provide the list of athletes eligible for services.
Individual athletes: If athletes stay in Québec for a short period of time but not with an official and recognized training group, they will have to pay fees. In exceptional cases, an agreement can be made between the two canadian centres for payment of services. If you are an individual athlete that would like to come train to the INS, contact Caroline Truchon, Athletes Services Advisor: firstname.lastname@example.org
If athletes consult with a non-identified INS Québec provider, the INS Québec will not cover the costs.
For training camps or longer training group stays in Québec, all services must be negotiated in advance by the sport organization or the coach in charge of the group.
For identified training groups recognized by Québec spending a considerable amount of time in Québec, the sports medicine services limits are also negotiated in advance
