February 5, 2014, Ottawa (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) welcomes two new members to its Board of Directors. Justice Hugh Fraser and Ian Glen bring a strong combined background in sport, law, and leadership to the CCES.
“We are proud that the CCES’ work continues to attract such renowned volunteers,” said Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES. “Our two newest board members’ love for sport and background in law will serve us well as we continue to strengthen our anti-doping initiatives, and more specifically, as we work to update the Canadian Anti-Doping Program to reflect the new World Anti-Doping Code which will come into effect January 1, 2015.”
Justice Hugh Fraser was appointed a Judge of the Ontario Court in 1993 and then Regional Senior Justice for the East Region of Ontario in 2013. Prior to his appointment to the bench, he worked in private practice and as corporate counsel. He also served on the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal and was a member of the Dubin Commission of Inquiry into the use of performance-enhancing drugs. He was a member of the Canadian National Track & Field Team for 10 years and competed in many international events including the 1976 Olympics. He has also been involved in sport in an administrative capacity.
Ian Glen spent his early years as a lawyer in the Department of Justice and most recently served as Senior General Counsel at the Department of the Solicitor General. Prior to this role, he served in public policy and public administration roles. He also served in a number of senior positions, including Associate Deputy Minister of the Department of Employment and Immigration, Associate Deputy Minister of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration, Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet (Cabinet Operations), Deputy Minister of Environment Canada, Chief of the Communications Security Establishment and Chairperson of the National Parole Board.
