The CCAC thanks Marie Bédard for her 20 years of service and commitment to the CCAC.
After playing an important and influential role at the CCAC for over two decades, Marie Bédard, our Assessment and Assessment Communications Director is moving on to begin another chapter in her career. During her time at the CCAC, Marie has continually championed its mandate, diligently and constructively helped Canadian institutions and individuals on the front lines of animal care and use to improve the quality of their programs.
We sincerely thank Marie for her invaluable contributions to the CCAC and for her support of individuals and groups aiming for the highest standards of animal care and use. Her presence will be deeply missed. We at the CCAC send our best wishes to Marie in all her future endeavors.
