Making a difference in communities

People are social, and need communities designed to help us achieve our greatest potential. In my career I have had a chance to touch on community well-being, either as a land use planner, provincial policy maker, or today in funding projects promoting cross-sectoral collaboration across the province to address mental health and substance use issues that touch on our every day lives.
