Archery Canada mourns the passing of Ghislain Arsenault

OTTAWA, ON – Archery Canada is saddened to learn of the passing of Ghislain Arsenault, a former International Judge and WAA Honorary Judge. His resume of involvement in the sport does not end there. Mr. Arsenault served as the President of FTAQ from 1981 to 1985,  a national judge in 1986, and became an international judge candidate in 1994. He was a member of the Judges team for 15 National Championships, and was the Chairman of the Organizing Committees for both the Championships of the Americas in 1982 and the Canadian Championships in Trois-Rivières, QC (in 1984 and 1987). He has judged at numerous international events, including the Pan American Games in 1999 and 2007, the Paralympics in 2000, the World Archery Championships in 2005, and two World Archery 3D Championships (2007, 2009). 

Mr. Arsenault was also one of the founding members of the Canadian Archery Foundation, being one of the driving forces behind its inception and early beginnings. 

The organization is incredibly grateful for the contributions that Mr. Arsenault has contributed to the sport, both in Canada and internationally. We send our condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones.
