The Canadian Athlete Leadership Council (CALC) had their first-ever meeting and it was a huge success!

Ten Provincial/Territorial Athlete Representatives along with their mentors travelled to Toronto, December 1-3, 2017 to take the Athletes on Committees and Boards training course and to participate in the inaugural CALC meeting. This meeting was chaired by athlete Katie Saunders, who saw a vision for this council many years ago. Special Olympics Canada values the athlete voice and are very proud of all athletes who shared their thoughts, opinions and feedback over the weekend. Everyone went back to their Chapters with an action plan and we look forward to seeing the excitement and enthusiasm rise as this council works together to speak on behalf of the athletes across the country.
