Alumni Program

Around the country, former Commonwealth Sport Canada (CSC) people want to stay in touch with our organization, reconnect with former colleagues and make valuable contacts through the Commonwealth Sport Canada Alumni Program.

People who leave CSC are never truly "lost" to our Organization. Most value the time they spent with us: the friends they made; the things they learned and the opportunities it provided to them. CSC is proud to have been a part of so many lives and would cherish the opportunity to continue the relationship through the CSC Alumni Program!

The objective(s) of the Alumni program is to create an engaged community.  A well run Program can serve a number of important purposes, such as:

  1. Allow for alumni interaction and networking;
  2. Promote feelings of affinity and loyalty towards CSC and to foster a lifelong relationship with the Commonwealth Sport Movement;
  3. Encourage alumni to become engaged through volunteerism:
    1. Organize special events which are fun and exciting;
    2. Mentorship Opportunities;
    3. Increase awareness, raise the profile and enhance the reputation of CSC and work that we do (Speakers Program, Schools Program);
    4. Provide support for awards
  4. Assist in finding "lost alumni

 

We are reaching out to as many Canadian Commonwealth Sport alumni as possible.  If you are an alumni and would like to register for the Alumni Program or update your contact information click here.

Definition of Alumni:
Alumni means “persons who have been involved with Commonwealth Sport Canada as a Member, Committee Member, Employee, Intern, Athlete, Coach, Official, Organizing Committee (Team Member) and who are no longer in any of those categories”.

When do you become an Alumni, but you must request membership into the Group:
Members:             At the AGM that is your last official function
Employees:          Last day of employment
Interns/CSOs:      At the completion of your tour during debrief
Team Members:   When Games are completed and CSC Certificate distributed

Participating in the Commonwealth Games was an incredible achievement!  By virtue of your participation on Team Canada, whether recently or many games ago in 1930, when they were first born - you are now a Commonwealth Sport Canada Alumnus. As a valued CSC Alumnus you are eligible to receive:

  • e-updates on news & information about the Commonwealth sport movement in Canada and abroad.

We would love to stay in touch or reconnect with you.  CSC’s Alumni Program is a great way to keep in touch with your Commonwealth colleagues and receive exclusive benefits.

We strive to keep in touch with every CSC Alumni, if you know of any CSC athletes, coaches, officials or volunteers please encourage them to join. If you are interested in volunteering for the Alumni in roles such as; athlete mentoring, organizing a CSC event in your area, etc. please contact the CSC office.
