Timothy Wallace is a 34-year veteran of the CSP, currently patrolling at Mount Norquay as a member of Calgary Zone. He has been and continues to be involved in the training and development team as an AFA and on-snow instructor and has been recognized multiple times for his work over the years. In 2002 he was recognized with a national Bravery Award by the CSP for his part in an avalanche rescue effort.
Tim was a member of the Canadian Reserve Forces for more than 43 years, and was deployed to Bosnia among other assignments, retiring with the rank of major as the deputy commanding officer of 41 Signals Regiment. He was inducted to the Order of Military Merit for his work and also received the Order of St. John for promoting the aims of the order by instructing first aid as a volunteer and as an instructor for the CSP.
Tim is also currently the group commissioner for 58 Thorncliffe Scouts and is a scouter working with beavers, cubs and scouts. Prior to his current commissioner’s post he was the Chinook Council commissioner for three years until Scouts Canada eliminated that council.
Between his work with the CSP, military and Scouts Canada, it’s clear that Tim is a leader in developing youth into future leaders and supporting other leaders in their continuing development on an ongoing basis. In 2022 he was presented with both the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal and the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers. Congratulations on being recognized for all of your work over the years. It is very well deserved indeed.
