Sometimes, when a high profile executive “retires” you know it won’t be long until you hear their name again.

We couldn’t have been the only ones who had that feeling last year when Teck Resources Limited CEO Don Lindsay announced that he was calling it a career after 17 years with the company. After all, the company was (and is) one of the biggest, most successful operations in the province. 

Today, just over six months since Lindsay left Teck, it was announced that the longtime executive has been appointed chair of the 2025 Invictus Games. The Games were founded in 2014 by Prince Harry to create a platform for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans, to compete in a multitude of adaptive sports. 

The Vancouver version of the Games will be the first to incorporate winter sports and will be held in both Vancouver and Whistler. The Games are slated to bring over 500 competitors from 20 nations to compete in adaptive sports, including the new winter sports of alpine skiing, nordic skiing, skeleton and wheelchair curling.

I am thrilled to accept the role of Chair for the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025,” said Lindsay in a release. These Games will showcase the importance of adaptive sports for those recovering from illness or injury, while also highlight the beauty of British Columbia. Those who serve in militaries around the world offer up so much of themselves for their country and I am honoured to be able to give my time and efforts to thank them and help support them and their families on their journey of recovery.”
