HR executive Sandra Levy has been appointed to the board of directors for GFL Environmental Inc., effective April 28, 2023.

Her election will expand the board to 10 directors, nine of whom are independent.

Levy is a two-time Canadian Olympic athlete in the sport of field hockey and is a senior human resources executive with more than 25 years of experience in human resources and legal roles.

She is the current chief people and culture officer at the Canadian Olympic Committee, a position she has held since 2020. Prior to joining the Canadian Olympic Committee, Levy served as vice-president, human resources of RioCan Management Inc. from 2018 to 2020 and as vice-president, people and corporate affairs of First Capital Asset Management ULC from 2015 to 2018.


She currently is a member of the board of trustees and chair of the governance committee of SIR Royalty Income Fund (a TSX-listed public company).

“I am thrilled to welcome Sandra to the GFL board of directors, following an extensive search for a new independent director”, said Patrick Dovigi, Founder and CEO of GFL. “Sandra’s broad experience as a lawyer, an HR professional, and an Olympian allows her to bring a unique perspective to GFL’s Board. We look forward to drawing on Sandra’s experience as we continue to build a diverse and inclusive workforce at GFL that supports our entrepreneurial and innovative culture.”
