Changes to Bylaws from AGM

There is a lot that happened this Saturday at the annual MPA AGM.

  • We elected a new Executive (see the “Contacts page”)
  • New standards to qualify for Provincials (this will be posted very soon and the Bylaws updated
  • The addition of a new position to the Directors of the MPA in the form of Past President (please see the Bylaws when uploaded)

We are at the beginning of a new era in the MPA.  This is exciting and also a little intimidating.  Our sport is growing and on Saturday the MPA took a step into the future with the next generation taking the reins.  We are in good hands and it is my ongoing hope that our sport will continue to grow in popularity and the MPA will continue with the attributes that have made us who we are today.  That is, we will continue to help eachother grow and learn in our chosen sport, represent ourselves well in the  larger sporting community and remain open and welcoming to all those interested in powerlifting and getting stronger through consistent planned drug free training practices.

2017 Presidents Report from AGM

2017 MPA President’s Report


2017 has been a very busy year for the MPA.  We successfully put forth a bid to host the 2017 CPU Western Powerlifting Championships at the CPU AGM in February.  This effort was taken on by our Meet Directors Susan Haywood and Amanda Burg.  There were many details that were discussed, decided upon and implemented which served to make the event a success.  This was not accomplished without the traditional support of the MPA membership at large.  We had excellent participation and work ethic from our members.  Many of you not only volunteered but lifted at the Westerns and contributed in some way to the success of the event.  Thank you all for this!

The MPA membership has consistently been over 100+ members throughout the year.  The present membership stands at 124 members.  Although we are not the largest of provinces by membership we have demonstrated steady growth and an increase in our competitive membership not only locally but on the National and International stage.

The MPA has invested in the future during 2017.  We purchased a trailer to house and transport the competition equipment, we also purchased another ER Rack for the Westerns.  Another investment was made in an Elieko Competition bar and collars, 2 x 25kg plates, 2 x 10 kg plates and new record plates.  This was done to accommodate larger weights on the competition platform and to replace some older plates that had fallen outside of the acceptable parameters for competition purposes.

We are presently pursuing the purchase a new set of competition lights.  These are the DSL units that we had borrowed from the CPU to run the Westerns.

The MPA did make a modest amount of money from hosting the Westerns.  Our bank balance is presently at $10,392.05.  It is important moving forward that the MPA remains fiscally responsible to our members so we can continue to invest in promoting the sport within the province.

The future is bright!  We have been pursuing and encouraging our Meet Directors to assume control of their events and to operate independently.  We have also increased our Officiating base by running Referee’s Clinics.  We have some new Provincial Referees and some who are ready to step up and write the National Referee test.

The CPU has implemented the Coaching Certification program and the first class will be run in Winnipeg in December.  The CPU has also made a significant investment in drug free sport over the past few years.  Unfortunately, a MPA member did test positive for PEDs at our Provincials.  The good news is that our entire membership has complied with the online clean sport training.  This promotes knowledge and prepares our athletes for participation in this wonderful sport of Powerlifting.

As many of you know I am stepping down as MPA President.  I have served as part of the MPA Executive for over 20 years.  It has been a privilege to witness the growth of our sport throughout this time.  This does not mean I am “riding off into the sunset” however, it does mean that I feel I have accomplished the goal of preparing you, the next generation of lifters, executive members, coaches and referees to step up and assume control of the MPA for the future.  I’ll see you on the wood.

Yours in Sport,

Brock Haywood

Global Survey

Hi All,

I just received the following information and request from CCES for input from our members on a proposed Charter of Athlete Rights. Not mandatory, but an opportunity to voice opinions on thr rights of athletes in the world of anti-doping.

I’m wondering if you all would be willing to have this added to your Facebook pages, or otherwise communicate this to your members.

Thanks very much,

Subject: IMPORTANT: Global Charter of Athlete Rights / une charte mondiale des droits des athletes

Hi Chris,

Could you kindly forward the below information to your athletes – the intention being to get as many responses as possible from all levels of athletes by October 31st, 2017.

Should you have questions about the survey or the Charter of Athlete Rights, please

Thank you in advance for your support in this important initiative.

Dear Canadian Athlete,

This email presents an opportunity to shape a global Charter of Athlete Rights which can impact you and/or the next generation of athletes around the world. Please read and act immediately.

As you might be aware, the WADA Athletes’ Committee began work on a Charter of Athlete Rights (“C.O.A.R”) during the March 2017 WADA Anti-Doping Symposium in Lausanne. They have since invited several organizations, including FairSport, a number of athlete committees including the IOC AC, National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs) including the CCES, and now AthletesCAN to discuss this Charter, quickly identifying that the Charter required a mandate beyond doping in sport. As such, an international working group is being created to provide a collaborative platform from which the Charter will be developed, overseen, and delivered.

Motivated by the many athletes who reached out to express their disillusionment with the current state of sport, this project will take concrete action for change, creating something that clearly outlines and defines the rights of athletes.

The goal of this Charter is to effect positive change for the betterment of sport through creation of a tangible legal document that will have the potential to be adopted and endorsed by all sport governing bodies, nationally and internationally. We believe this has the potential to provide all athletes with a greater opportunity to participate in a fair sport system to reach their full potential on the field of play and beyond.

To accomplish this, we need to hear your voice directly. Please take a few minutes to answer this survey and help forward and encourage other athletes to answer as well. The more voices we can get, the more credibility we can achieve – remember, #TheCollective is strongest when we come together.

This survey will only take 10 minutes, but can help to shape a document that may change the sport landscape forever. When you have completed the survey, please tweet a message to@fairsportorg, @EthicsinSport and @AthletesCAN and include any of #CDNAthleteLeaders #AthleteVoice #CharterofAthleteRights and challenge your teammates to do the same! The results of this survey will help to inform the first draft of the Charter for a broader review.

We believe this global Charter of Athlete Rights will be a game changer for athletes but we need your help. In the best spirit and interest of athletes around the world, we hope you will participate in this exciting opportunity to use your voice. Let’s show the world that #CDNAthleteLeaders have a strong voice and can answer a call to action when needed!

Survey closes October 31, 2017.

All the very best,

Dasha Peregoudova

FairSport UK and FairSport US will process data submitted through this survey fairly and lawfully only for the creation of the Charter of Athletes Rights, to promote FairSport in the international athlete community and to enable FairSport to assess athletes’ support for the provision of anti-doping whistleblower protection and support. Survey responses will not be used in a manner which would allow identification of your individual responses. By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in the FairSport Privacy Policy.

FairSport is an independent foundation striving to eradicate cheating in sport. They support confidential sources who speak up to unmask doping, and educate the global public on the value of honesty and integrity in sport.

AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes, is the only fully independent and most inclusive athlete organization in the country and the first organization of its kind in the world. As the collective voice of Canadian national team athletes, AthletesCAN ensures an athlete centered sport system by developing athlete leaders who influence sport policy and, as role models, inspire a strong sport culture.

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization with a responsibility to administer the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP). We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.

Cher (chère) athlète du Canada,

Ce courriel vous donne la chance de façonner une charte mondiale des droits des athlètes qui pourra avoir une incidence sur vous-même et/ou la prochaine génération d’athlètes du monde entier. Veuillez le lire et agir immédiatement.

Comme vous le savez peut-être, le Comité des athlètes de l’AMA a commencé à élaborer uneCharte des droits des sportifs (« CDS ») lors du Symposium antidopage de l’AMA tenu à Lausanne en mars dernier. Depuis, le Comité a invité plusieurs organisations dont FairSport, un certain nombre de comités d’athlètes dont la CA du CIO, des organisations nationales antidopage (ONAD) dont le CCES ainsi qu’AthlètesCAN tout dernièrement pour discuter de la Charte et a rapidement conclu que celle-ci requérait un mandat allant au-delà de la question du dopage en sport. C’est pourquoi on s’affaire actuellement à créer un groupe de travail international qui servira de plateforme collaborative par laquelle la Charte sera élaborée, supervisée et livrée.

Ce projet, inspiré par les nombreux athlètes qui ont exprimé ouvertement leur déception relativement à l’état actuel du sport, établira des mesures concrètes de changement en créant un document qui décrira et définira clairement les droits des athlètes.

Cette Charte veut apporter des changements qui amélioreront le sport en proposant un cadre juridique concret que pourront adopter et promouvoir tous les organismes directeurs de sport aux niveaux national et international. Nous croyons qu’un tel projet pourra accorder à tous les athlètes une meilleure chance de participer à un système sportif équitable en vue d’atteindre leur plein potentiel dans les stades et au-delà des stades.

Pour y arriver, il nous faut obtenir votre point de vue d’une manière directe. Veuillez prendre quelques minutes pour répondre à ce sondage, aider à le transmettre à d’autres athlètes et les encourager à y répondre aussi. Plus nombreuses sont les réponses que nous obtiendrons, plus grande sera notre crédibilité; rappelez-vous, #lecollectif est à son plus fort quand nous nous rassemblons.

Vous n’aurez besoin que de 10 minutes pour compléter ce sondage mais celui-ci aidera à créer un document qui pourra changer à tout jamais le paysage sportif. Quand vous l’aurez complété, nous vous prions de publier un message sur Twitter à @fairsportorg, à @EthicsinSport et à@AthlètesCAN, d’y inclure l’un ou l’autre des mots-clics #AthlètesLeadersCDN, #VoixdelAthlèteou #ChartedesDroitsdesSportifs et de défier vos coéquipières ou coéquipiers d’en faire autant! Les résultats du sondage aideront à inspirer la première ébauche de la Charte qui sera examinée plus largement.

Nous estimons que cette Charte mondiale des droits des sportifs marquera un temps nouveau pour les athlètes mais nous avons besoin de votre aide. Dans le plus grand esprit sportif et dans l’intérêt supérieur des athlètes de partout, nous espérons que vous profiterez de cette chance emballante de faire entendre votre voix. Prouvons au monde entier que les #AthlètesLeadersCDN ont une voix forte et qu’ils peuvent répondre à un appel à l’action quand c’est nécessaire!

Le sondage prendra fin le 31 octobre 2017.

Agréez l’expression de nos sentiments les meilleurs.

FairSport UK et FairSport US traiteront les données fournies par ce sondage d’une manière équitable et légale dans le seul but de créer la Charte des droits des sportifs, de promouvoir FairSport auprès de la communauté internationale des athlètes et de permettre à FairSport de jauger l’appui des athlètes en faveur de mesures protégeant et soutenant les dénonciateurs en matière d’antidopage. Les réponses au sondage ne seront pas utilisées d’une manière qui permettrait de distinguer vos réponses individuelles. En fournissant vos renseignements, vous consentez à ce qu’ils soient utilisés conformément à la Politique de confidentialité de FairSport.

FairSport est une fondation indépendante qui cherche à éradiquer la tricherie en sport. Elle soutient les sources confidentielles qui s’expriment ouvertement pour dénoncer le dopage et instruit le public mondial sur la valeur de l’honnêteté et de l’intégrité en sport.

AthlètesCAN, l’association des athlètes des équipes nationales canadiennes, est le seul regroupement d’athlètes au pays qui soit totalement indépendant et aussi le plus inclusif, en plus d’être le premier organisme en son genre dans le monde. En tant que porte-parole collectif des athlètes des équipes nationales du Canada, AthlètesCAN s’assure que le système sportif est centré sur l’athlète en formant des athlètes leaders qui influencent les politiques du sport et qui, en tant que modèles de comportement, inspirent une solide culture sportive.

Le CCES est l’organisme national indépendant et à but non lucratif responsable de l’administration du Programme canadien antidopage (PCA). Nous reconnaissons que le sport sain peut faire une grande différence pour les individus, les collectivités et notre pays. Nous avons pris l’engagement de travailler en collaboration à activer un système sportif basé sur des valeurs et animé par des principes; à protéger l’intégrité du sport des forces négatives du dopage et d’autres menaces non éthiques; et à défendre le sport juste, sécuritaire et ouvert à tous.
