Triathlon Canada is in the process of moving its head office from Toronto to Victoria – with the new office scheduled to open on October 30.
Triathlon Canada is the governing body for triathlon in the country. Recognized as an Olympic medal sport since 2000 and Paralympic medal sport as of 2016, Triathlon Canada’s mandate is to promote, foster, organize and develop the sport of triathlon, and its related disciplines, in Canada.
Many of Canada’s top triathletes have trained in Victoria, including Olympic gold medallist Simon Whitfield, Xterra and Ironman Champion Brent McMahon, Commonwealth Games silver medallist Kirsten Sweetland and World Cup silver medallist Ellen Pennock.
This brings the total of national teams located in the BC capital to nine.
