Three Canadians on ICF Board of Directors

Canadians-ICF-Board-Web.png

Left to right: John Edwards (ICF Chair, Paracanoe), Don McKenzie (ICF Chair, Medical and Anti-doping), Casey Wade (CEO, CKC), Frank Garner (ICF Chair, Canoe Sprint) and Peter Giles (President, CKC)

Three Canadians have maintained their positions on the International Canoe Federation’s Board of Directors following elections at the ICF’s Extra Ordinary Congress in Baku, Azerbaijan, under a newly accepted ICF Governance structure.

Frank Garner was re-elected from a competitive field of four candidates as the Chair of Canoe Sprint. Garner has held this position since 2008 and has been a member of the Canoe Sprint committee since 1995. The result of Friday’s election means he will serve another four-year term and now sits of the ICF Executive Committee.

Garner, of Waverley, NS, has been a long-time paddling volunteer, a past national team coach and was Chief Official at multiple Olympic Games including Rio 2016. As Chair of Canoe Sprint he has lead the proposal for an Olympic program with gender equity for 2020. He has made strides in making canoe sprint a more universal sport and has been working to improve the sports presentation aspect of competitions while maintaining the sport in its pure form.

John Edwards has earned another four-year term as the ICF’s Paracanoe Chair. Edwards, of Carleton Place, ON, has played a lead role internationally in making paddling accessible to everyone. He helped to steer Paracanoe towards inclusion in the 2016 Paralympic Games for the first time ever. Edwards was Canoe Kayak Canada’s Domestic Development Director for sixteen years and has recently been named a finalist for the World Paddling Awards under the Lifetime Achievement category.

Dr. Don McKenzie will continue as Chair of the ICF’s Medical and Anti-Doping Committee. McKenzie has been a strong advocate for clean sport. He has been the Chief Physician for the Canadian paddling team for many years and also sits on the board for the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Through his research he has lead the international Abreast In A Boat movement in which he has enabled thousands of breast cancer survivors to enjoy healthy and active lifestyles but involving them in dragon boating.

“We are proud of to have these three highly respected Canadians serving in such influential roles at the international level,” said Peter Giles, President of Canoe Kayak Canada. “Each of them has made tremendous contributions to the sport and we are pleased that they will continue to lead the way forward.”

Corey Stewart honoured with 2016 Premier’s Award for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport

Corey-Stewart-Awards-news-header.pngCorey Stewart from the Nisga’a and Tsimshian Nations and Pitt Meadows Paddling club received a 2016 Premier’s Award for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport on November 15. A para kayaker, Stewart joined seven other athletes from the Fraser Region at the Kwantlen Culture Centre for the formal celebration.

The Awards were presented by Stephanie Cadieux, MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale.

“In British Columbia, we are proud of our strong First Nations heritage,” said Cadieux. “The Premier’s Awards for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport are a tremendous opportunity to celebrate the skills and talents of great athletes among Aboriginal youth in the Fraser region and throughout the province.”

The Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council, in collaboration with the Province of British Columbia, launched the regional nomination process in September 2016, receiving more than 130 nominations from across the province for Aboriginal athletes under 25 years of age who have achieved excellence in performance sport, are regarded for their leadership qualities, are committed to higher education, and are recognized as community role models both on and off the field of play.

A total of 47 recipients were chosen within the Partners Council’s six regions – Northeast, Northwest, Interior, Fraser, Vancouver Coastal, and Vancouver Island.

The 2016 Premier’s Awards for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport – Fraser Regional Recipients are:

  • Corey Stewart, age 24, Para Kayaking, Nisga’a and Tsimshian Nations
  • Hunter Lang, age 15, Softball, Ts’Kw’aylaxw First Nation
  • Joel Harrison, age 17, Soccer, Metis Nation BC

Annual awards reception honours some of the province’s best

CKBC-awards-news-header.pngCanoe Kayak BC honoured the province’s top athletes, coaches and volunteers at its annual awards banquet this past Friday in Burnaby. Over 85 individuals who achieved paddling excellence this past season received medals, plaques, scholarships and recognition for their hard work.

Maple Ridge’s Laura Said was honoured as Canoe Kayak BC’s Volunteer of the Year. Said was cited for her dedication to officiating and mentorship to new officials. Included in her many accomplishments was the respect both athletes and coaches have for her on the water.

Canoe Kayak BC also awarded two deserving members with $500 scholarships. Rhys Taylor (Chilliwack) and Matthew Abbott (Burnaby) are both long time members who have contributed significantly to canoe and kayak in B.C.

Taylor is a long-time athlete and volunteer in whitewater programs in B.C. This past summer, under his strong leadership, there was a significant increase in the number of school and summer program registrations in the Chilliwack Club. Taylor is currently enrolled in his first year at the University of the Fraser Valley in a Bachelor of Science Program

A former sprint paddler, Abbott is now the Vice Commodore at the Burnaby Canoe and Kayak Club and is completing a 20-month program at the Justice Institute to become an Advanced Care Paramedic. He began paddling in 1999 and was a Team BC member at the 2001 Canada Summer Games. He continues to assist at provincial training camps and events and is a Level 3 official who will complete his Level 4 evaluation next year.

Former Team Canada members Corey Hamilton and Cory Rublee were honoured by Canoe Kayak Canada CEO Casey Wade. Both athletes made significant contributions to the national program.
