Under her leadership and guidance, the Canada Games Movement and the role the Canada Games property has played as a premium, nation-building, multi-sport event that enriches Canadian culture and creates lasting legacies have both evolved. During her tenure, Hylland worked to ensure that the Canada Games Council built solid relationships with its many key stakeholders in an effort to continuously improve the athlete experience and to always inspire youth across Canada to participate in sport and physical activity.
Chairman Tom Quinn, while saddened at Sue’s departure from the Canada Games Council, is very aware of the significant contributions that Ms. Hylland has made to the Canada Games Movement over her fourteen years as President and CEO of the organization.
"Sue is one of the most passionate, capable and dedicated leaders in amateur sport in Canada and has evolved the Canada Games to its present level and professional standards. Sue will be missed by the entire Canada Games family,” said Quinn.
“It has been an honour for me to have worked on the evolution of this great Canadian property with so many wonderful people and stakeholders,” said Hylland. “My sincere thanks is extended to Chairman Tom Quinn, past Chairman Larry Smith, CGC Directors and staff, and our past, current and future Host Societies for making my time with the CGC a truly meaningful experience, one that has created friendships for life. I will cherish the many positive memories I have, and wish everyone great success in the future with the celebration of our 50th Anniversary in 2017 in Winnipeg, MB next year.”
The CGC will be commencing a recruitment process on Monday, July 4th. The closing date for applications will be Friday July 22nd. Should there be an interest in the position or clarification on the process, in the interim, please contact Tom Quinn, Canada Games Council Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
