Amongst these newly appointed players is Jaime Perrault, who is one of four Vancouver Whitecaps FC Girls Elite members to join the Women’s National team.

Perrault grew up in Pitt Meadows, joining West Coast Soccer in Pitt Meadows at only five-years-old.

As she got older, Perrault continued her passion for soccer, eventually joining Coastal FC in the BC Soccer Premier League.

She made her debut in the Canadian youth soccer program earlier this year at the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in the Dominican Republic, where she scored one goal and one assist in her match against Costa Rica.

In the first match of the tournament, Canada lost to Colombia in a 1-0 match, followed by another loss on Sept. 3 in their 4-1 match against Mexico. On the final day (Sept. 6), Canada got their sole victory of the tournament with a 3-2 win over Chile.

Their 1-2 record led them to finish last in the four-team tournament, with Colombia coming away as the winner.
