About International Program Services
As the national member of la Fédération
Internationale du Sports Universitaire (FISU), the IPS is mandated
to facilitate high performance competitive opportunities for
student-athletes who are Canadian, between the ages of 17 and 28,
and enrolled full-time in a post secondary institution.
Separate Winter and Summer World University Games (Universiade) are held every two odd years, and offer competitive opportunities in over 20 sports. 27 Single Sport World University Championships are currently offered every two even years, from April to December, and are generally sports not offered at the Universiades.
