Board of Directors


A word from the chair……

This past year has been a successful one at Hospice North Hastings. With help from our businesses All Occasion Event Rentals & The North of 7 Film Fest we have continued to grow and fund new programs. 

A new storage facility to house medical equipment and to protect the equipment from the elements was built with the support of a Foundation Grant, TIM-BR MART & Steve Huzarik and his crew.  Our new Rest & Relation program which runs each Thursday morning provides respite for caregivers and persons facing a life changing condition.  This program is offered at no charge to anyone registered with Community Care Access Centre and provides yoga, therapeutic touch, massage therapy, reiki and lunch! 

All of our growth is a result of our incredible Board of Directors, Staff &Volunteers and the help of businesses and individuals in the area.  We continue to run all of our programs…including our home visiting program and the residential hospice without any government funding.

The new electronic signs in Bancroft and Maynooth have garnered positive feedback from the community.  The signs generate income through paid advertising and keep everyone informed of any events and public announcements/emergency notification.

I would like to thank Kelly Soanes for her many years of volunteering with Hospice and for her tenure as Chairman of the Board of Directors.  I have big shoes to fill.
