Our Board of Directors

Board members help with increasing visibility, policy development, revenue and fund development and oversee the affairs of Canadian Roots Exchange’s activities. Given the size of CRE, the board plays an active role and works alongside staff ensuring that our mandate is fulfilled.  All members of the Board serve on a volunteer basis and without remuneration.

Board of Directors

Hi everyone, my name is Harry, a Chinese settler-immigrant currently living on Dish with One Spoon Territory (Toronto). I am currently a social worker, in the field of violence against women and family violence work with children and youth. There is a special place in my heart for mental health work with activists and community-builders, having engaged in the concurrent tasks of trauma-healing while community-building. A huge part of this past work is very much related to this organization, as I was a CRE program participant, a YRI member, and past staff member. Now I have the privilege to be back as a board member, to continue to learn and enact on meaningful reconciliation work. In my down time, I enjoy indulging in my sweet tooth, thinking about exercising and how great that would be, and am currently re-discovering my love for reading.
