SportWORKS - Making a Difference & Becoming Different

SportWORKS Officers assist Commonwealth Games Associations in different countries with sport administration activities ranging from programming, fundraising and communications to the implementation of the Games Management software program Zeus.

Capacity Support Program

The Capacity Support Program (CSP) is part of CGC’s SportWORKS initiative, which sends Canadian sport leaders into Commonwealth countries throughout the world to deliver sustainable sport programs and build sport system capacity. SportWORKS prides itself on “Making a Difference and Becoming Different.” The Capacity Support Program aims to not only assist CGAs/NOCs, but also to make a difference in the lives and careers of CSOs.

CSP is a joint initiative between Commonwealth Games Canada, the Commonwealth Games Federation and Olympic Solidarity, designed to build and enhance the capacity of Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) / National Olympic Committees (NOCs). The program aims to build organizational capacity through internship placements of Canadian SportWORKS Officers (CSOs), who assist the host CGAs/NOCs with sport administration activities including: marketing and communications, office and governance, membership relations, sport development and games team preparations.
