On this International Volunteer Day, Mission Inclusion is proud to honour the remarkable engagement of all the members of its Board of Directors.

Special recognition goes to the members who joined the team last May: Perla Massiel Garcia-Camacho, Richard Lachance, and Shirin Emadi-Mahabadi.

André Dufour, Chairman of Mission inclusion’s Board of Directors, expresses his gratitude:

“The arrival of Perla, Richard and Shirin brings new energy and enriching perspectives to our Board of Directors. Their commitment to our values of inclusion and social justice is a powerful driving force for our mission. We are proud to have them on board.”

Richard Veenstra, Executive Director of Mission inclusion, adds:

“Mission inclusion’s board members and volunteers play a crucial role in realizing our vision of an inclusive society. Their skills, their diverse life paths, are examples of citizen engagement with inclusion, and enrich our approach.”

Shirin Emadi-Mahabadi declares:

“I’m delighted to be part of Mission inclusion, and I look forward to contributing to its immense impact in the coming years, both here in Quebec and abroad,” adds

International Volunteer Day is a reminder of the importance of volunteering in philanthropy. The volunteer commitment of our Board members embodies the spirit of solidarity and mutual aid essential to building inclusive, equitable and open communities here and everywhere.
