His focus is continuing BCIT’s commitment to delivering strategic workforce development to support British Columbia’s economic prosperity through an applied education model. Prior to joining BCIT, Paul was Vice President Investor Development at 2010 Legacies Now (the legacy organization of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games).
Paul has been actively involved in many local community organizations and boards over the years, most recently serving as a member of the national board of the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education.

“Education and sport are some of the great equalizers of modern society, but disability adds an additional dimension”. Paul has great admiration and respect for Para athletes as they strive for excellence and become experts at adapting. “The Paralympics opens doors a bit more widely for these outstanding athletes and provides a powerful forum in Canada for Awareness, Acceptance, and Opportunity.”
