The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) embodies a community of coaches who have achieved elite status in their careers by granting the official designation of Chartered Professional Coach (ChPC) and the status of Registered Coach to professionals in the field of coaching in Canada. Setting the bar for coaching in Canada, a chartered professional coach is an individual who represents the pinnacle of their profession and demonstrates a passionate commitment to coach education, training, certification, and standards of responsible coaching practices. Adhering to the highest standard of moral and ethical conduct, ChPCs and Registered Coaches represent competent, ethical, credible and educated leaders.
Registered coaches or ChPCs are recognized for their credibility and extensive experience in coaching; this is among some of the great benefits of being affiliated with the CAC. Other benefits include the athlete monitoring and sport data management platform offered through FITSTATS Technologies Inc.
