“Montreal’s Marc-Andre Fabien elected new Canadian Paralympic Committee president” by The Global and Mail

The Globe and Mail quotes Montréal lawyer, Marc-Andre Fabien, in an article regarding his new elected position as president of the Canadian Paralympic Committee.

Fabien takes over from Dr. Gaetan Tardif, who was president the past four years. A seasoned lawyer, Fabien is a senior partner at Fasken Martineau and has been with the firm since 1982. He has been involved in Paralympic sport for over 20 years as a fundraiser, board member, fan and supporter.

“The Canadian Paralympic Committee is at a turning point,” said Fabien. “As an organization, CPC and its member sports need to work together even more closely to achieve the following goals: increase the recognition of Para sports, develop the grassroots level, bring and organize international Para sport events to Canada, and reduce dependence on Government funding through becoming closer to the business community.”
