Canadian Olympic Committee Congratulates Marcel Aubut on Being Named Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance “Sport Event Volunteer of the Year”

TORONTO – Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) released the following statement on the presentation of the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance’s “Sport Event Volunteer of the Year” award to COC President Marcel Aubut. The announcement was made today as part of the CSTA’s Prestige Awards at a lunch held at the Westin Hotel, in Ottawa.

“On behalf of the entire Canadian Olympic family, I would like to congratulate our President, Marcel Aubut, on being named the Sport Event Volunteer of the Year by the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance. Volunteers are the backbone of Canada’s Sport events and operations, and that includes those involved with the Canadian Olympic Committee. Each year, thousands of amazing individuals give their time in support of Canada’s Olympic Movement and we could not do the work we do without them. Leading the charge is the man I like to call the COC’s hardest-working volunteer: our President, Marcel Aubut. Alongside our athletes and coaches, Marcel gives his everything every single day. Congratulations once again, Marcel, on this well-deserved award.”
– Chris Overholt, CEO and Secretary-General, Canadian Olympic Committee
