The Government of Canada is committed to appointing highly qualified candidates to serve the best interests of Canadians on commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies, and tribunals across the country.
Today, the Minister of Labour, Filomena Tassi, announced the reappointments of employee members Lisa Addario, Gaétan Ménard and Daniel Thimineur to the Canada Industrial Relations Board. All three members were reappointed to the Board following consultation with organizations representative of employees.
