At CATIE’s Annual Meeting, held October 14, 2016 in Toronto, we elected our Board of Directors for 2016/2017. New to the team is Alexandra de Kiewit, CATIE’s Director for Quebec, replacing Terry Pigeon who is retiring from that position. Alexandra has been involved in community work since 2010. After working for five years at Association Québécoise pour la promotion de la santé des personnes utilisatrices de drogues (AQPSUD), she now works as a Liaison Officer for Stella. All other members of the Board (see list below) remain to fulfill their terms in office. CATIE heartily thanks Terry Pigeon for his service through the years.
