Jeff Sauvé Moves on to Next Chapter

BC Adaptive Snowsports (BCAS) wishes to inform members and supporters that after almost three years successfully leading the organization as Executive Director, Jeff Sauvé will be departing his role to pursue the next chapter in his career.   

During his tenure, Jeff raised BCAS to new heights and steadily navigated the organization through the challenges of the pandemic.   

“Jeff has been instrumental in enhancing our program delivery and leaves BCAS on sure footing,” said Sarah Morris-Probert, President, “his exemplary leadership in driving the safe return to sport has also been widely recognized throughout the sporting community.” 

While he is off to take on new challenges and inspiring work as the Executive Director of the BC Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund, Jeff reflects fondly on his time with BCAS. 

“BC Adaptive Snowsports truly reflects the power of sport – driven by an army of dedicated volunteers who strive to knock down every barrier for those with physical and / or cognitive differences.  It was both deeply motivating and humbling to work with the BC Adaptive Snowsport community. I learned a great deal from them about what it means to advocate for those who deserve our support.  I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to serve in a leadership role with BC Adaptive Snowsports,” said Sauvé. 

While with BCAS, Jeff successfully launched new fundraising initiatives, rebranded the organization, and optimized key functions to better support clubs across the province.   

“Over the past several years, Jeff has spearheaded the modernization of BCAS and forged strong partnerships that will continue to serve our community and clubs for years to come,” said Keivan Hirji, Vice-President, “while we are disappointed to lose Jeff, we thank him for his outstanding contributions and wish him the best in his next role.” 

BC Adaptive Snowsports began a candidate search over the holidays to identify a new Executive Director. Stay tuned for an announcement on the outcome of that search in the coming days!
