Interim CEO, Mark Hoosein

June 4, 2021

Dear Stakeholder,

The Board of Civida would like to announce the departure of our CEO, Greg Dewling effective June 3, 2021.

Over the past several months the Board of Directors has been meeting on a number of priorities, one being Civida’s long term vision and strategy moving forward. In regard to this strategy, we believe that we require a renewed focus on our accountabilities and our obligations to Edmontonians in need of affordable housing. Our environment is changing, and so must we effect change to remain competitive and engaged with our core mission.

The Board thanks Greg for an amazing journey with us. We are well positioned to take the next step in our strategic vision, through the foundations that he has built, and the team that Greg has assembled. We are well positioned with all three orders of government, and we have a positive relationship with key stakeholders.

The Board has started the process of seeking a new CEO through a competitive recruitment process.

We will be appointing Mark Hoosein as our Interim CEO effective June 3, 2021. We ask that you provide Mark with all the assistance that he may need to effect a smooth transition.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to thank Greg for his many contributions to Civida and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Best regards,

Paul Whittaker
Civida Board Chair
