Living History Project is a database of current and former national level athletes, coaches, volunteers and staff.   This includes anyone who skied or coached for one of Canada's National Ski Teams (Junior, Senior or Para-Nordic), anyone who was on the Board of Directors or was a member of one of CCC's national level committees, or anyone who worked in the CCC office since its inception in the early 1970s.

 

Why not take a few minutes to read the entries and learn a little bit about some of the people who've contributed in so many ways to our sport?

CCC Awards: Cross Country Canada has many dedicated volunteers and staff at all levels of the sport and in all areas of the country.   In appreciation of the work that these people do on behalf of our sport, various awards are presented each year at the Annual General Meeting in June.   In addition to volunteers and staff, awards are also presented to sponsors and to media personnel who have had the greatest impact in their areas of involvement with the sport.   Nominations for these awards are accepted from across the country and recipients are chosen based on the specific award criteria.  

Other Awards: Other related organizations and partners offer various awards to volunteers, sport builders, internationally acclaimed athletes, officials and coaches. Nominations for these awards may come from CCC members or from external organizations
