Director General
Linda Brunet
“What could be more enriching than to work in an environment where we celebrate Canadian values, are surrounded by exceptional volunteers, and strive for the development of our future leaders? I encourage Canadian youth to find their unique place, as it is the source of great fulfillment. I've had the immense pleasure of leading this exceptional program since 1999, and I'm as passionate today as I was on day one.”
