From the Paper:

"In order to sustain the sports funding models required to ensure that its mission is achieved, the COC routinely engages in joint ventures with partners in the industry. These joint ventures have seen the development of affiliates such as the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games (VANOC), Podium 2010, and Calgary Olympic Development Association (CODA). Additionally, the COC has established strategic alliances with others in the sports communities in order to gain the support and sponsorship needed for the development of its ongoing projects. One such project is the upgrading of its website that includes many new features and links to some of its partners."
