Ottawa, November 9, 2015 – Intact Insurance Company, Speed Skating Canada’s major sponsor, announced today that the Border Blades (Lloydminster, AB), Salmon Arm Ice Breakers (Salmon Arm, B.C.), Eastman (Beausejour, MB), Iqaluit (Iqaluit, NU), Milton (Milton, ON), Oakville (Oakville, ON), Pointe-aux-Trembles (Montreal, Rivière-des-Prairies – Pointe-aux-Trembles borough, QC) and Victoriaville (Victoriaville, QC) Speed Skating Clubs, were each awarded a $1,000 bursary as part of the 2015-2016 Podium Tracker program.

Last weekend, Canadian skaters won a total of 8 individual medals at the ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating in Toronto, Canada.

In the 500m, Samuel Girard and Charles Hamelin won gold medals while Sasha Fathoullin and Marianne St-Gelais won silver medals. St-Gelais and François Hamelin also won bronze medals in the 1500m. In the 1000m, Charle Cournoyer won a gold medal while Valérie Maltais took the bronze medal.

Canada also won the gold medal in the men’s relay event.

The Intact Podium Tracker Program tracks individual medals won by Canadian short and long track speed skaters in World Cups and World Championships. Each time an athlete steps onto the podium, Intact Insurance donates $1,000 to a local speed skating club in Canada.

So far this season, Intact Insurance Company gave a total of $14,000 in donation to 14 clubs, representing the 14 individual medals won by Canadians in World Cups and World Championships events.

Since the inception of the Intact Podium Tracker Program during the 2010-2011 season, Intact Insurance has donated a total of $215,000 to Canadian speed skating clubs.

“We are proud of the strong showings from the Canadian team,” said Anna Rajpat, Intact Insurance’s Vice President of Brand Development and Customer Experience. “Through the Intact Podium Tracker Program, we hope to support more young skaters and skating clubs across Canada in their training and racing needs, further promote speed skating in Canada and help build future Olympians in the sport.”
