The mission staff is a team of volunteers who support the sport teams by looking after many of the logistics the teams require in order to compete to the best of their ability. The mission staff, lead by the Chef de Mission, are the main link between the host society, Canada Games Council and the provincial delegation. Through ongoing communication with the coaches, managers and the provincial sport organization liaisons, the chef de mission and the mission staff will work to ensure the teams have all the information they need related to subjects such as accommodations, meal services, transportation to the games, transportation at the games and information specific to each sporting competition.
Each set of Games, the chef de mission puts out a call for applications for interested Islanders who wish to be considered for the mission staff. Positions generally include team liaisons, communications and administrative staff.
