Changes to Collège Boréal’s Board of Governors for 2017-2018

Changes to Boréal’s Board of Governors were announced at the college’s first staff meeting of the academic year. Mr. Georges Ansell is now the chair of Collège Boréal’s Board of Governors whereas Mr. Vincent Lacroix has become vice-chair.

Mr. Ansell, now retired, had a successful career with the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. Proud supporter of Collège Boréal and the francophone community, Mr. Ansell sat on the college’s Board of Governors as a member from 2003 to 2005, and again from 2013 to 2017. He also acted as chair from 2005 to 2009.

Last June, the Board thanked Mr. Stéphan Plante for his years of service, including two as Board chair. His vision and leadership proved to be essential in the implementation of the college’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan and presidential candidate selection process. Four other Board members who had completed their term were also honoured for their steadfast commitment to the college: Mr. André Dutrisac, Mrs. Michelle Lamy, Mrs. Alice Norquay, and Mrs. France Picotte.

The following new members have joined the Board: M. Christian Bruneau, M. Bryan Neeley, Mme Penny Sutcliffe, M. Mario Villeneuve, as well as Ms. Gisèle Glory as student representative.


“On behalf of the Board of Governors, I would like to thank Mr. Plante for the leadership he demonstrated over the course of his term as chair. I look forward to taking on this challenge once again and will work with Board members to lead Collège Boréal toward the realization of its strategic objectives.”

Georges Ansell, Chair of Collège Boréal’s Board of Governors

“I would like to thank the Board members who, through their commitment, have helped Collège Boréal set its course for years to come. I look forward to implementing future initiatives in collaboration with every member of this dynamic team.”
