The Board of directors are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Sandra Carpenter to the position of Executive Director, Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT) Inc.
Sandra is well known within Toronto region’s disability community and its supporters including academics, and nationally within both the independent living and consumer movements. She directed CILT for a time in its very early days, and returned to CILT over seven years ago as Program Manager.
Throughout the 90’s and the early 2000’s, CILT has operated primarily within the network of Independent Living Resource Centres and with the Canadian Association of Independent Living Centres. The net result is that we have remained close to our roots and consumer issues within Toronto and Ontario, providing resources for people with disabilities.
Sandra is a person who can lead CILT to a new level of effective community engagement, working with health care, service provider and activist partners. We have every confidence that Sandra will continue to build on the relationships she has forged and develop new and effective partnerships as we move forward for the future.
Please join us in welcoming Sandra to her new role.
