Get Involved

Are you enthusiastic, passionate and committed to improving sport in Canada as an athlete leader? If you answered yes, AthletesCAN has an opportunity for you!


Our board of directors is made up of current and retired Canadian athletes who are driven to effect positive change and to ensure the athlete voice is heard.


Since 1992, current sport leaders such as Minister Carla Qualtrough, Charmaine Crooks, Steve Podborski, Susan Auch, Lori Johnstone, Kris Burley, Curt Harnett, Janice Forsyth, Todd Nicholson, Claire Carver Dias, Alexandra Orlando, Nicole Forrester, Tom Hall, Craig Buntin, Trevor Hirschfield, Josh Vander Vies, our founders, Ann Peel and Dan Thompson, our current board and so many more – have started their leadership pathway with AthletesCAN.

If these #CDNAthleteLeaders are inspiring to you, and you want to play a bigger role within the AthletesCAN organization, please consider joining the board of directors to help lead your association through 2021 and beyond.


AthletesCAN is inviting all interested persons to apply for or nominate an athlete for our Board of Directors. We are looking for athletes who are passionate about athlete rights and want to contribute to making the sport system more athlete centered. For the 2022 election, expertise in business and finance would be an asset but is not required. 


Elections will be held at the 2022 Virtual AthletesCAN Annual General Meeting. The date of the AGM and application deadline will be shared at a later date.
