Incoming Council Commissioner Appointment

Voyageur Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Christopher Lyon as the Incoming Council Commissioner for Voyageur Council.

Chris will take on the Council Commissioner role on September 1, 2018.

Chris first joined Scouts Canada as a Cub and then as a Scout in his home town of Lennoxville, Quebec. He helped his troop send a contingent to the World Jamboree in Norway in 1975, and participated in the Canadian Jamboree in Prince Edward Island (CJ' 77). He joined the 104th Ottawa leadership team as a Beaver Scouter in 2001, volunteering as the Colony Lead before "swimming up" to be a Cub Scouter. From 2007 to 2015, Chris was the Lead Troop Scouter and also played a role in the 104th Ottawa Group Committee. For the past year, Chris has also served as the Deputy Council Commissioner of Fundraising.

He believes that the Scouts Canada program, and its celebration of natural ecosystems, offers an unmatched opportunity for creative healthy development in our youth. He was honored with the Scouts Canada’s Medal for Good Service and a Certificate of Commendation from Canada’s Governor General in 2012. He was awarded his 10- Year Service Award in 2013. Chris is an avid community volunteer, wilderness canoe camper, singer-songwriter and folk guitar player.

Chris brings over 30 years of civil engineering and senior management experience to the position of Council Commissioner. As a professional engineer with consulting firms and municipal governments, Chris is familiar with major financial responsibilities and has consistently delivered innovative municipal programs and engineering projects. Chris has effectively led programs and projects on-time and on-budget for various municipalities, councils and boards of directors. Engagement with the public-at-large and listening to the needs of a wide range of stakeholders have been an integral aspect of Chris's professional work.

Please join us in welcoming Chris as our incoming Council Commissioner. He can be reached at
