Discussions in the AC can vary from rules and regulations, quotas, performance, training camps, etc. The AC is responsible for thinking objectively for the good of all athletes in the country. Where possible, the AC should represent the diversity of the sport in Canada, from gender and geography to disciplines. The AC will be primarily geared towards open athletes but will reflect on youth programs and competitions as well.

The AC will be the collective voice of all the CEC’s athletes, regardless of discipline and will assist the organization in the fulfillment of its mission and the pursuit of its vision.
