A Message From Our President

I am honoured to have been elected to serve as President of our association for the 2022/2023 term.  I am happy to have the opportunity to lead the association as we continue to grow as an organization, despite the challenges we have all faced over the past two years.

I would like to acknowledge the returning Board members, Derek Petch, Jennifer Therkelsen, Kristin Vandergeld, Stephen Jamieson, Alex Wray, Caitlin Deevey, Harinder Singh, Dave Chatwell, Mary Beth McMullen and Italo Joe Luzi. I extend my sincere gratitude to the Board’s administrative secretary Craig Calder, for his dedication, continued guidance and assistance with Board functions.  A warm welcome to our newest Board member, Michelle Wright.

The Board of Directors is made up of a group of dedicated individuals who bring a wide range of experience to the table. We are working towards maintaining our standards of service, and dedication to training our membership and providing them with the best possible representation amongst the industry.

The 2022 Annual Training Seminar was held in Kingston in May and was an overwhelming success. Thank you to all members who attended. It was wonderful to be back in person again and I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting new members at the 2023 ATS in London.  Applications for the 2023 ATS will be posted on our website, and spaces fill up fast so please make sure you check the website regularly.

You will all notice that our Facebook page has had more activity lately.  Our new Communications Directors Caitlin and Michelle will be busy ensuring members are kept up to date through our website and Facebook page.  I encourage everyone to join our Facebook page and stay tuned for the opportunity to win prizes.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any of the members of the Board. We are happy to help.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to wish all members a safe and happy fall and winter.


Allison Henshall, C.M.M II, CPSO
