Sigge Björklund 1926 - 2018 Posted on Dec 7th, 2018

pix-Sigge_Bjorklund.jpgAlf Sigvald Björklund (Sigge) passed away peacefully late in the evening on November 10, 2018 with family at his side. He was born in Lappfjärd, Finland, and immigrated to Vancouver in 1956. 

Sigge worked as an electrician throughout the Lower Mainland and later founded the ski shop Sigge’s Sport Villa. He is well known for his passion and commitment to cross country skiing in Western Canada. As one of the original members of CANSI, he was active on our board and as a course conductor. His leadership helped grow the sport and the association during our early years in the late 70s, 80s and early 90s.


Marie-Cat Bruno Special Fund Posted on Oct 24th, 2018

Donations for the Marie-Cat Bruno Special Fund are intended to financially help women pursue their goals in the Nordic ski industry. 


It is to continue the legacy of Marie-Catherine Bruno that CANSI created this fund. 

A former racer, Marie-Cat was the first and, to this day, only woman to have achieved the highest levels of certification in both cross country and telemark ski instruction.  

Through her involvement as CANSI-Pacific Technical Rep, she successfully contributed to develop and maintain the highest standards in Nordic skiing technique and instruction at the regional and national levels.
