With a career spanning more than 35 years in sport in Alberta, Pat has been involved with the Canada Games, supporting and leading Team Alberta, since 1993. Pat was a true leader among all Chefs de Mission from across Canada. Her extensive knowledge and history in multi-sport Games and strong partnerships with Provincial/Territorial Mission Teams helped guide many Host Societies in their planning for each edition of the Canada Games.
Pat’s contribution to sports development in Alberta was highlighted by the success of Team Alberta, both on & off the field of play, at the 2019 Canada Games. As Chef de Mission, Pat led her team to the Jack Pelech Award, an honour given for spirit and congeniality among Provincial/Territorial Teams and the Centennial Cup which is presented to the team that shows the greatest improvement from one game to the next.
Pat’s sudden passing will leave a tremendous hole in our Canadian sport community. Her energy, passion and dedication will be carried forward for years to come, leaving a lasting imprint on the Canada Games Movement and the athletes she supported.
