Please note that this list is unofficial and is subject to change pending the outcome of any appeals and/or any re-selection decisions made by the Selection Committee or the Quest for Gold Appeals Committee. As a consequence, this list should not be seen as final.
Athletes who have not been nominated and who wish to appeal this decision can do so by following the process below. Issues related to the specific content or selection requirements contained in the Triathlon Ontario Selection Criteria are not grounds for an appeal and should therefore be discussed directly with the leadership of Triathlon Ontario.
1. Before and athlete can file a Notice of Appeal, they must ask Triathlon Ontario for reasons explaining why they were not nominated for an Ontario Card before April 15, 2020.
2. Triathlon Ontario will respond to the athlete in writing by April 16, 2020.
If the athlete is not satisfied with the Triathlon Ontario response, the athlete may submit a Notice of Appeal, found at the end of the criteria document. A Notice of Appeal will only be accepted from the athlete or their parent/guardian on the MHSTCI-provided template (typed or hand-printed, no hand-written entries).
Due to COVID-19, all staff are working remotely, and appeal submissions will only be accepted via email at [email protected].
One appeal cannot be written on behalf of multiple athletes. The Notice of Appeal email must be received by MHSTCI by noon on the deadline day.
The Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries has scheduled the appeals process to conclude and a final list of QFG recipients to be posted by May 25, 2020. Given the current challenges with COVID-19, every attempt will be made to meet those deadlines, however, dates are subject to change. We appreciate your understanding.
