Quotes:
“Clint is an exceptional individual with a history of delivering successful sporting events across Canada
and in the region,” said Michael O’Connor – Chair, Victoria 2022 55+ Games. “Clint is collaborative and
knowledgeable. The board could not be happier to have Clint as the General Manager. I would also like to
acknowledge Destination Greater Victoria, Greater Victoria municipalities and the Province for their
continued support as we plan and build the Victoria 2022 55+ BC Games.”

“Sport tourism has become an integral part of the Greater Victoria visitor economy,” said Paul Nursey –
CEO, Destination Greater Victoria. “It is important these events are well-organized, and athletes enjoy
their time in the destination. Clint is an excellent choice to oversee all aspects of the Victoria 2022 55+
Games and ensure a successful Games. I know he will do a wonderful job and I look forward to working
with him.”

“I am pleased to be able to support the planning and delivery of this event for Greater Victoria and work
with the very talented and experienced Board of Directors,” said Clint Flood. “I am proud to call Victoria
home having moved here to work on the 1994 Commonwealth Games which was a transformative event
for the region. The 2022 55+ BC Games are a great opportunity to showcase the venues and all that the
Greater Victoria region can offer, and for the hard-hit hospitality industry to benefit from the infusion of
4000 participants from across the Province. Some 1500 volunteers will help make sure that the event is
delivered with efficiencies and big smiles.”

About the 55+ BC Games
The 55+ BC Games is an annual, multi-sport competition celebrating active and healthy adults 55 years
of age and older. The Games are funded primarily by the BC Seniors Games Society (BCSGS) and the
Provincial Government. They are an important part of the Sport 4 Life Long Term Athlete Development,
with many of the Provincial Sport Organizations providing support. The BCSGS is the parent organization
that is responsible for the overall governance of the Games, the sport specific rules, and the liaison with
the participants.

The 55+ BC Games are presented on an annual basis in different host cities in the province. Due to
COVID-19, the Games were cancelled in Richmond in 2020, and the 2021 Games in Greater Victoria were
postponed to 2022.

In 2017, an Economic Impact study found that the 55+ BC Games provide an impact of over $3.3 million
to the host community. In addition, Host communities benefit from the development of capacity to host
large multisport events by training volunteers and improved infrastructure through the Games Legacy
program.

Destination Greater Victoria (Greater Victoria Visitors and Convention Bureau) is our region’s official,
not-for-profit destination marketing organization working in partnership with nearly 1,000 businesses and
municipalities in Greater Victoria.
