Message From The CEO

Together, we can put the power of sport to work to bring joy and build unity across Canada


 

I joined the Canadian Olympic Committee in January 2019 after spending several years abroad working in sport. Having the opportunity to lead the COC and the incredible people within it is a dream come true. I am proud to be part of an organization that is deeply committed to excellence.

My tenure begins on the heels of an incredible year. In 2018, the Canadian Olympic Committee demonstrated why it is one of the world leaders in promoting amateur sport. Not only did Team Canada win a record number of medals at the PyeongChang Games, we achieved major media milestones, executed phenomenal programming across Canada, and launched a nationwide conversation about Canadian values.

I look forward to working with our stakeholders and the broader sport community to continue to invest in Team Canada’s podium success, build a stronger sport system, and champion equality, integrity and inclusion.

The Olympic Movement is a powerful tool. Together, we can put the power of sport to work to bring joy and build unity across Canada.

Sincerely,
Chris
