Red Deer, Alberta will play host to the 2019 Canada Winter Games from February 15 - March 3, 2018
Held once every two years, alternating between summer and winter, the Canada Games represent the highest level of national competition for the next generation of national team athletes and future champions. The Games are proud of their contribution to Canada’s sport development system in addition to their lasting legacy of sport facilities, community pride and national unity. Since the first Games in 1967 in Quebec City, more than 75,000 young athletes have participated in the Canada Games.
The organization of the Canada Games is made possible through the tireless dedication of the local Host Society, the contribution and support of the federal, provincial/territorial and host municipal governments and the Canada Games Council.
Team Yukon is seeking enthusiastic dedicated and experienced sport volunteers for Mission Staff positions. Mission Staff are ambassadors and representatives of the Yukon Territory and play a key role in the success of a well-managed team. Team Yukon is preparing to have a group of representatives who will operate under the direction of the Chef-de-Mission, and will be assigned to work with, and disseminate information to a designated sport before and during the Games.
Mission Staff must possess strong communication and administration skills and be able to work cooperatively within a fast-paced and ever changing environment. Mission Staff must possess a balance of the technical understanding and competency in a particular sport with the ability to communicate and engage youth. All Mission Staff must be aware that they are required to attend the Games as a volunteer and are not compensated for any time away from work. Meals, accommodation and transportation to and from the Games will be provided. Applicants for Mission staff should be aware that the personal time commitment before and during the Games is quite extensive.
Included with this application is a list of Mission Staff roles and responsibilities. This should be read thoroughly prior to submitting an application.
It is also recommended your application is endorsed by the Yukon Sport Governing Body (YSGB) of the sport you are interested in. Please note that if selected, you will be required to hold a valid driver license and submit a criminal & vulnerable record check
