Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.
Trevor Linden is one of only three players to have their numbers retired by the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League. He personifies the strength of character of the athletes who have inspired our Fortius Foundation and who will define Fortius Sport & Health in the years to come. Building on his reputation for leadership and work ethic on the ice, Linden has become synonymous with community investment and community enhancement through the power of sport. In addition to serving as captain of the Canucks and recording 409 regular season and playoff goals and 567 assists in his 19-year career with Vancouver, New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals, Linden represented all NHL players as the President of the NHLPA at a key stage in its own history in the early to mid-2000s. He became the face of the Canucks' franchise and was strongly associated with key Canucks' community relations and foundation initiatives such as the Canucks for Kids Fund and Canuck Place. Linden was also a member of Canada's Nagano 1998 Olympic men's hockey team, represented Canada in the world championships and World Cup of Hockey and won gold for Canada in the IIHF World Junior Championships in 1988. Linden has launched Club 16 Trevor Linden Fitness, with outlets in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. He is involved in several residential/commercial development projects with Howard Airey of Airey Development Group and is a spokesperson for ClearlyContacts.ca, a global eyewear company headquartered in Vancouver. He is also known as an avid cyclist, enjoying both mountain bike and road racing disciplines of the sport.
