After almost 19 years, NWT Seniors’ Society Executive Director Barb Hood will be replaced.

The Society’s Board of Directors have chosen Suzette Montreuil to succeed Hood.

President of the NWT Seniors’ Society Mary Pat Short, in a statement, welcomed Montreuil.

The Board looks forward to working with Suzette to seek solutions for the needs of older adults in the NWT.

Montreuil will be bringing experience with working with the elderly here in the North, having worked as an Occupational Therapist in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. She says she’s focus on making the best out of this opportunity.

I look forward to having this chance to collaborate with the older adults of the NWT and to put their wisdom to work for creating better living conditions for all seniors.

The move is effective today.
