Born and raised in Newfoundland, Jeff Hunt and his family moved to Ottawa in 1984 and were immediately immersed in Ottawa’s sports culture. They attended Ottawa 67’s and Ottawa Rough Riders games and Jeff was hooked on the “fan experience”.
During the 1990’s, after founding and growing his carpet cleaning business, Canway, into a 7-time Profit 100 business, Mr. Hunt purchased the Ottawa 67’s and set-out to grow their fan-base. The results were spectacular, largely because of a philosophy which will also be followed by OSEG’s CFL football and NASL soccer teams—deliver a fan experience that appeals to the whole family and connect with the community.
Mr. Hunt’s community connections extend to a range of Ottawa charities, schools and institutions, through the Ottawa 67’s Foundation and the team’s community outreach programs.
