A message from Lorraine

Dear Family Council members, long-term care home staff, community and government partners, and other friends,

As in all great stories, as one chapter ends, another begins; so it is for FCO. After almost 12 years with Family Councils Ontario, I am moving on to new pursuits as of the end of December 2019. It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome Samantha Peck as the new Executive Director of FCO, starting January 2020. In moving on, I am confident that FCO is in good hands.

I have been so privileged to have worked alongside such an amazing staff team and with many Family Council members, long-term care home staff, and community and government partners. Thanks to everyone. It truly has been an honour to work with you!

A special thank you to Samantha who has worked closely with me for my nearly 12 years with FCO. Thanks, Sam!

In the wise words of Margaret Mead, "never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world."

We have made a difference. And we have changed the world.
