Published November 14, 2017

After a long and accomplished career with CHF Canada, Nicholas Gazzard has decided to retire, effective November 27.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to serve CHF Canada over the last 18 years, 12 of them in the position of executive director,” said Nicholas.  “I wish CHF Canada the very best for the future as it builds on a half-century of success on behalf of Canadians.”

“We thank Nicholas for his many valuable contributions over the years, not only to CHF Canada but to the broader international co-operative housing movement,” said CHF Canada President Nicole Waldron.

“We wish Nicholas well in this new chapter of his life,” said David Waters, President of CHF Canada’s Ontario Council.

Karla Skoutajan has been appointed to the position of Acting Executive Director.  With her decades of experience working with housing co-ops, and high standards of member service, CHF Canada’s members can expect steady leadership throughout the transition.

Karla can be reached by email at kskoutajan@chfcanada.coop and by phone at 1-800-465-2752 ext. 241.

A recruitment and hiring process for a permanent replacement will be announced in the coming weeks.
