From Canada Games: The Next Generation in Canadian Leaders

David Thibodeau (MPPA 2018)

With inclusion being a core value at Canada Games, we recognize the importance of creating an environment that welcomes and accepts everyone who attends. We are thankful to alumni like David Thibodeau, who competed in Swimming for Team New Brunswick in the 2013 Canada Games, for leading these conversations with us and helping us find new ways to live our values. Since competing in the Games, David has gone on to become a You Can Play Ambassador and has been a great source of  knowledge for our staff and organization on inclusion. David was generous enough to speak with us about both his experience competing at the Canada Games and his work advocating for ending all types of homophobia and transphobia in sport.
