Rugby Canada has new chairman

Former Newfoundland player taking the reins of Langford-based body

At Rugby Canada’s recent annual general meeting in Langford, Tim Powers was voted in as the chair of the board of directors for 2016/2017.

Powers, who hails from Newfoundland and works out of Ottawa in the consulting and opinion research industry, has been a member of the Rugby Canada board since 2012 as a general director and was re-appointed to serve a second four-year term.

“It is an exciting time for the sport and our leadership team wants to do all it can to advance rugby in Canada and help our athletes fulfill their dreams,” Powers said in a release.

He replaces Pat Aldous as chair and joins vice-chair Gordon Sneddon, secretary Kathy Henderson and continuing treasurer Jay Johnston on the executive committee.
