Executive director departure announcement

Monday, June 17, 2019Genevieve Gagnon

The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health and CHEO are announcing that our executive director, Michelle Hurtubise, has resigned to pursue a new career opportunity in a direct care, community-based organization. 

We are grateful to Michelle for her leadership over the past 3 years, particularly stewarding us through a new strategic plan that reinforces our commitment to improving service quality and mobilizing knowledge for Ontario’s community-based child and youth mental health sector.

Over the next while, CHEO will be implementing a recruitment strategy to identify Michelle’s successor, likely to be announced in the Fall. In the interim Dr. Purnima Sundar, who has a long history as a member of the Centre’s leadership team, will be continuing in her role as acting executive director.
