The Canada Games Council (CGC) is currently seeking energetic, passionate and enthusiastic individuals to serve on their Board of Directors, who are able to dedicate their time and expertise to help grow the Canada Games Movement and our Canadian sport system.
CGC’s mandate is to deliver the Canada Games in a way that develops athletes, sport, and leaves lasting legacies in communities. CGC works to deliver value to its key stakeholders, including governments, Host Societies, national and provincial sport organizations, Canadian youth and Canadians at large.
Created by Federal, Provincial and Territorial governments through the Clear Lake Agreement, CGC is a national, private, non-profit organization that serves as the governing body for the Canada Games. As the Games move from one host community to the next, CGC provides continuity, leadership and support to Host Societies. CGC ensures effective long-term partnerships with national sport organizations, governments and the corporate sector: it allocates resources in support of a compelling vision and set of values.
Led by a committed group of volunteer Directors, the CGC benefits from the incredible expertise and dedication of thousands of volunteers working across Canada to prepare teams and the Canada Games.
The CGC has seven (7) volunteer board positions up for election in September 2020.
Nominations will be reviewed and assessed with the objective of achieving a balance of required expertise, skill sets, geographic representation, diversity and inclusivity.
