The DID season is from June 1st to May 31st each season. A DID must be requested for each season.
ALL CANADIAN DID REQUEST MUST BE DONE BY THE FORM BELOW
IFSS will not accept any direct DID request, all requests must be sent by CAHDS
CAHDS will submit DID # requests on the athletes behalf at the beginning of each month. In order to meet this obligation the below form with payment must be submitted by athletes on or before the 26th day of each month
Purchasing a DID from CAHDS will define your competing nationality as CANADIAN. A competitor residing for more than 24 months in a different country than his/her citizen nationality may choose to be considered as a national of his country of residence. If you are not Canadian citizen but reside in Canada for at least 24 month, you may purchase a DID from the Canadian Federation.
Your DID has to be allocated by IFSS prior to any IFSS sanctioned event in order to collect world cup point at that event. To assure your DID request is processed in time, make your demand as soon as possible and no later than two weeks before the first IFSS sanctioned race in which you intend to participate. The DID is only valid once IFSS process it, all is done on volunteer time and there is a delay between when you apply for your DID and when it becomes valid.
Also note that your DID request will not be sent to IFSS if you are not a member of CAHDS.
Collecting World Cup points, therefore obtaining a DID prior to participating in an IFSS sanctioned event, increases your chances to be selected for World Championships.
You need a DID to enter any World Championship. You can apply to represent Canada at world championships without a DID, but will be required to make your demand if selected.
