Canadian Olympic Committee

The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) is the private, non-profit organization representing Canadian athletes in the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Pan American Games. It was formally recognized by the IOC in 1907. The COC also represents the selection of Canadian cities in their bid for being the site for an Olympic or Pan American Games. The COC currently represents 464 athletes and is structured into three levels of governance:

* Executive Committee
* Board of Directors
* General membership

The Canadian Olympic Committee is based in Toronto, Ontario.
