Twelve Quebec sport federations benefit from Quebec government investments in the INS Québec network

Montreal, December 12, 2017 – The Institut national du sport du Québec (INS Québec) is pleased with the projects undertaken by the twelve Quebec sport federations in their single-sport training centres to support the development of high-performance athletes and the improvement of their facilities. Thanks to the Quebec government’s investment in the INS Québec network as a whole and to the 25% increase in the funds dedicated to supporting single-sport training centres, the Quebec sport federations have completed 16 projects during 2017-2018. This includes three new sports (Beach volleyball, Sailing, Boxing) that will participate in the program for the first time.

“The Quebec government’s investment provides us with the means to compete on an equal footing in the international sports arena, explains Tom Quinn, President of INS Québec. The projects of Quebec sport federations that are spreading throughout Quebec, as well as the collaboration of all the players in the INS Québec network, are essential in achieving the dreams of high-performance athletes.” »

Particularly in the regions, these projects may consist, for example, in the improvement of facilities to allow athletes to train in an environment on par with international standards or with the financial support of rental spaces or the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment so that Quebec’s high-performance athletes can develop their full potential. In total, more than 700 high-performance and next-generation athletes will benefit from the Quebec government’s investment in their single-sport training centres.
