The Chronic Pain Centre of Excellence for Canadian Veterans (CPCoE) is pleased to announce that the Canada Revenue Agency has granted the CPCoE charitable status. This will allow the CPCoE to continue to develop and grow as we work to improve the well-being of Veterans and their families suffering from chronic pain. We are pleased to announce that LGen (retired) Michel Maisonneuve will be joining the CPCoE team as a Strategic Advisor and International Liaison. To ensure no perceived conflict of interest exists, Maisonneuve has stepped down from his current position on the Board of Directors of the CPCoE.
“LGen (retired) Maisonneuve has had a tremendous impact as a Board member” said Dr. Ramesh Zacharias, President and CEO of the CPCoE. “We are fortunate that he will continue to serve as a Strategic Advisor and International Liaison to the Board and Management team of the CPCoE”.
“The CPCOE is providing essential support for Veterans by researching chronic pain and developing a strong network of clinics nationally and internationally” stated Maisonneuve “It was my honour to serve on the Board, and it is my pleasure to remain in support of the Centre in this new role.”
LGen (retired) Maisonneuve is also the recipient of this year’s Vimy Award for his 35 years of exemplary service to the Canadian Armed Forces and to Canada. More information on the ceremony will be released closer to that date.
