“New Leadership at the Helm of Hockey Canada”
Montreal has welcomed a new board of directors for Hockey Canada, with Jonathan Goldbloom stepping into the role of chair, taking over from Hugh L. Fraser. This transition comes with the addition of several new directors to the board, including Gillian Apps, Amanda Fowler, Corey Hirsch, Kristi Miller, Krista Outhwaite, and Geoffrey Wong. Additionally, Grant Borbridge, Goldbloom, and Marian Jacko have been re-elected after their service on the organization’s transition board of directors.
A Fresh Perspective
Goldbloom, hailing from Montreal, brings a wealth of experience to the table, having been a member of the executive committee for the inaugural Beyond the Boards Summit and overseeing Hockey Canada’s recent president and chief executive officer search committee. However, this new wave of leadership also sees the departure of Fraser, who has opted not to seek re-election due to his desire to pursue other projects related to safe sport. Fraser, who was part of a transition board in December 2022, has overseen a series of significant changes within the sporting body during his tenure.
The future of Hockey Canada is undoubtedly at an inflection point under this new leadership, and the decisions and direction taken by the board will undoubtedly shape the trajectory of the sport in the country. It remains to be seen what changes and innovations will come about as a result of this revamped leadership team.
As the hockey landscape evolves, it is crucial to consider the implications and ramifications of these changes from various angles. What will this new board bring to the table? What impact will their decisions have on the future of hockey in Canada? These are questions that will undoubtedly linger in the minds of hockey enthusiasts and stakeholders alike.
The Canadian public will be eager to witness the outcomes of this leadership transition, eagerly anticipating the ways in which the sport will adapt and grow under the guidance of the new board. Ultimately, the future of hockey in Canada rests in the hands of the individuals elected to steer the sport in a new and exciting direction.”
