Football Canada proudly announces the appointment of former CFL Vice-President Kevin McDonald as the Association’s Executive Director. 

The Kingston (ON) native brings over two decades of high-level football and sports administration experience to Football Canada.

“I’m truly honoured to accept the role of Executive Director at Football Canada. “This is an exciting time to be back in football.  There’s a lot to celebrate, and a lot of work to do, and I’m excited to join an amazing team and get started on helping shape and build our future.” McDonald said.

Previously, as Vice President of Football Operations at the Canadian Football League, McDonald was a leader for all issues in Canadian Football. McDonald’s experience provides direction and structure for the association as Canada’s flag teams strive for Olympic qualification for LA 2028 and continues developmental support of tackle football at all levels.

“It is a privilege to be entrusted with the responsibility of not only guiding Football Canada towards a continued future of excellence on the field, but more importantly, playing a role in our shared responsibility of developing the leaders of tomorrow; using sport as a vehicle to nurture and develop people who will go on to positively impact their local communities long after their playing days are over.” added McDonald.

McDonald has been serving as Football Canada’s Interim Director of Operations since the beginning of April.

“The leadership on the Board had confidence in Kevin’s direction since day one, and I believe the stakeholders who have engaged with him come away with that same impression,” Football Canada president Jim Mullin said.

The hiring of McDonald is the culmination of a national search and hiring process that ensured recruiting and evaluation were independent and aligned with Football Canada’s Code of Conduct & Ethics. Recruiter K.G. Consulting was in contact with numerous candidates from across Canada.

“The quality of talented leaders who applied reminded us of just how important football is in the lives of Canadians. It was a highly impressive group who stepped forward,” Mullin said.

McDonald sees a collective effort as the path to success.

“Together, we’ll capitalize on opportunities to boost participation, and cultivate a culture of excellence across every facet of the sport. We have only scratched the surface of our potential and we must commit to doing a better job of telling the story of what football offers and can deliver,” McDonald said.

The president agrees with McDonald’s vision.

“Kevin embodies the passion and care for the sport while remaining focused on growth potential. He has the vision we’ve been seeking to finally capitalize on the opportunities football has in Canada,” Mullin said.

“This hire was the most important decision this organization has made in six decades, and I believe we’ve got it right for the future of football,” Mullin concluded.
