Linden, a signatory and supporter of the BC Safety Charter, became a business owner when he retired from his playing career, starting the successful chain Club 16 Trevor Linden Fitness outlets.

“I learned to care for my employees’ health and safety in the same manner in which I cared for my teammates and fought for players’ safety in the NHL,” says Linden.

Linden was President of the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) for eight year from 1998 to 2006.
Linden has referred to the teamwork it requires to build a successful business and the leadership role that is required of business owners, executives and managers in ensuring that staff, employees, contractors and all those who contribute to the growth and success of the business are at the forefront of the leader’s mind.

“Leadership requires commitment and your people need to know you are on their side.”
