Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity  – Toronto, February 16, 2018 – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the appointment of longstanding sport leader Martha (“Marty”) Deacon to the Senate of Canada on Thursday, February 15th. The appointment is a terrific acknowledgment of Ms. Deacon’s leadership and service in the sport and educational sectors, from the local to the national and international.

Ms. Deacon’s impressive resume reflects a deeply-rooted commitment to the advancement of sport participation and excellence in Canada. Her influence extends throughout the sport system, a result of her decades of involvement as an athlete, coach, team leader, board member, consultant, educator and more.
