Erica Gavel has been elected vice-chair of the Canadian Paralympic Athletes' Council.
The wheelchair basketball player, who is serving a second term on the panel, succeeds Ross Wilson, who left the Athletes' Council in December.
Tony Walby, a two-time Paralympian in judo, chairs the Athletes' Council.
"Erica is a dedicated, passionate, and valuable voice within the Paralympic Movement in Canada and her role as a leader has definitely increased over the past few years," Walby said.
"She will make a superb vice-chair, and I am excited to work side-by-side with her, as well as the other members of the council."
Wheelchair curling's Ina Forrest - a three-time Paralympic medallist - and wheelchair rugby player Mike Whitehead were elected to the Athletes' Council in December, with ice hockey's Rob Armstrong, athletics' Jennifer Brown and boccia player Alison Levine also on the panel.
Gavel, who helped Canada win a gold medal at the Lima 2019 Parapan American Games, is also a member of the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation Athlete Steering Committee.
