Board of Directors

The Neighbourhood Group is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors. The Directors are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting. All members of Neighbourhood Link Support Services and Central Neighbourhood House are eligible to run for the Board of Directors.

As of July 1 2014, Central Neighbourhood House (CNH) amalgamated with Neighbourhood Link Support Services (NLSS) to form The Neighbourhood Group. While both organizations continue to maintain their names and services, we are governed by one Board of Directors made up of former CNH and NLSS Directors. As stated in our By-Laws, Directors can be elected each year at our Annual General Meeting; all members of CNH and NLSS are eligible to run for the Board of Directors.

We are thankful for the leadership contribution of our current Board members:

  • Mary Christie, Chair
  • Philip Fernandez, Vice-Chair
  • Marguerite Rea, Vice-Chair
  • Robert Gore, Treasurer
  • Jennifer Rae, Secretary
  • Maureen Armstrong
  • Tim Hughes
  • Lloyd Ilekys
  • Thierry Kagubari
  • Atrisha Lewis
  • Samira Viswanathan
