Chair of the Board of BC Hockey

477-2903 Gyp Road, Falkland, BC V0E1W0 





I grew up in St Bruno de Montarville a small community of about 300 back in the mid 50's. I was educated in elementary school at Don Bosco School and later attended McDonald Cartier Memorial High School in St Hubert,  Quebec and graduated from Presentation High School in Montebello, Quebec.


I  moved to British Columbia in 1973 and returmed to Quebec for a short stint prior to moving to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia in the mid seventies where he continues to make his home today. Growing up in Montreal in the 60's and seventies only served to entrench him as a die hard fan of the Montreal Canadiens. I played hockey till he was a teeneager, it was abundantly clear I was not going to make a living as a hockey player. My love for the game continued to flourish and I became involved in coaching youth hockey and is still involved after 40 plus years around the game. Currently I resides with my wife Lauren in Falkland BC which is half way between Vernon and Kamloops on Highway 97. Falkland is a small community of about 600 people nestled in a sequence of valleys that enjoys a warm climate in a pristine area that includes some incredible fishing and hunting, and hiking trails.

A message from the Chair of the Board 


As we continue the 100th year anniversary celebration of BC Hockey, I would first like to acknowledge the homelands and territories we share with Indigenous peoples across BC and the Yukon. It is also important that we remind ourselves of the incredible contributions of the tireless volunteers and dedicated staff whose efforts make this great game possible. The past 100 years of hockey in BC and the Yukon have left an indelible mark on the lives of all participants. Our past experiences and commitment in keeping hockey the greatest sport in Canada will continue to guide us in the future.

We will celebrate this memorable occasion with many activities planned throughout British Columbia and the Yukon. The 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship being held in Victoria and Vancouver in December 2018 and January 2019 will bring together excited participants, volunteers and hockey fans, and ‘Celly’, our recently unveiled mascot will be on the guest list as an added bonus to many scheduled events. In addition to the Road to World Junior Championship School Tour that kicks off this October and visits many communities across BC.

Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish. Our goal will be to continue to implement decisions that ensure our programming is based on current data with a direct connection to the national Long Term Player Development Model. This will improve the athletic skills of our players and provide clear direction for our coaches, bench staff and officials. Good sportsmanship and respect will continue to be fundamental components in all programming.

We must also stay focused on the safety and well-being of our participants both young and old, and at all levels. Changes to safety must be embraced head-on in order to continue to grow the game and retain players. Over the past two (2) seasons, our youngest athletes have benefited from clearly- defined cross-ice programming that has them touching the puck more often, expanding on their skills and knowledge of the game, and fostering lifelong friendships.
