About

Kids with a mascot

Team Canada Champion Chats is a program that empowers millions of Canadian students to embrace and take on challenges, prioritize mental health, achieve goals, and ultimately, be a champion in their school, home, and community!

Team Canada Champion Chats incorporates three different four-week curriculums that each culminate in a massive, nation-wide live chat featuring Team Canada Olympic and Paralympic athletes sharing their journey and experiences.

Each Team Canada Champion Chat curriculum will focus on a theme that encourages a growth mindset in and out of the classroom. This will include a discussion around topics such as goal setting, perseverance, mental wellness, inclusion, and diversity.
