Dear Members of Boxing Canada,

The board of directors would like to inform all PTSO’s of an important addition to our upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for December 9th, 2023. In addition to our standard agenda, and election, we will be holding an election to fill the vacancy for the position of Director of Ontario for the remainder of the one-year term.

This is a significant opportunity for members who are passionate about the growth and governance of Boxing in Canada. We encourage those who have a vision and commitment to contribute to our sport to consider this role. However, please note that only residents of Ontario are eligible to be nominated for this particular position.

The nomination period for this position is now open and will close on November 27th, 2023. We urge interested candidates to submit their nominations promptly to ensure their participation in this process.

Furthermore, I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming Canadian Sports Governance code, which will come into effect in April 2025. One of the key requirements of this code is that at least 40% of our Board of Directors must be female. In light of this, we strongly encourage female candidates to step forward and consider taking on an active role within our organization. This is a crucial step towards meeting these new governance standards and ensuring diverse representation within our Boxing Canada.

Your participation and support in this process are invaluable. We are committed to a transparent and inclusive election process and look forward to seeing a strong pool of candidates. For more information on the nomination process or the responsibilities of the Director of Ontario, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your continued dedication to Boxing in Canada. We look forward to your active involvement in shaping the future of our sport. Please email all nominations for the Director of Ontario role to [email protected]. We will also contact all current nominations for Board positions who are eligible for the Ontario Director to see if they are interested.

All nominations can be reviewed here

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Ryan O’Shea

President Boxing Canada
