Intact Insurance supports Canada’s Olympians as well as young and aspiring champions who skate with local speed skating clubs in communities across Canada. With the help of the fastest woman on ice, Catriona Le May Doan, Intact Insurance fosters the interest and supports the development of speed skating among Canadian youth through the Podium Tracker program.
Currently in its second year, Podium Tracker is a contest where Intact Insurance rewards local speed skating clubs $1,000 in cash and prizes every time a member of the National Speed Skating Team places on the podium during the 2011-2012 World Cup or World Championship.
Last season, our skaters were so successful that Intact awarded more than $50,000 to local speed skating clubs across the country. Many Olympic speed skaters even went to some of the clubs to hand the cheques over in person, much to the delight of our young athletes!
