The Globe and Mail will continue to support initiatives such as Team Canada’s brand campaigns as well as the Coaches Excellence Fund, which recognizes Canadian Olympic Team coaches who contribute to medal-winning Olympic performances at the Olympic Games.
“We know we can transform Canada through the power of sport and our goal is to inspire Canadians to their own greatness through the stories of Canadian Olympians,” said David Shoemaker, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary General of the COC. “That is why we are so fortunate to have a tremendous partner in The Globe and Mail that can help us tell those stories through their vast national platforms. We are incredibly excited about the content to come over the next four years and two Olympic Games.”
With The Globe and Mail journalists on the ground at Beijing 2022 and at Paris 2024, Canadians will also receive premium news coverage, analysis and insight on the events taking place, as well as a look into the host countries.
