Each year, the Forum’s Testimonial Dinner & Awards recognizes distinguished Canadians who have made a lasting contribution to the advancement of public policy and good governance in our country.
Verschuren is currently the Chair & CEO of NRStor. Inc, an energy storage company based in Toronto, Ontario. She is well-known for her past role as the President of The Home Depot Canada and Asia.
This year’s other honourees are:
Mary Simon, Chairperson, National Committee on Inuit Education, former President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, and Canada’s first Ambassador for Circumpolar Affairs
Sheila Fraser, former Auditor General of Canada
Heather Munroe-Blum, former Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University
“After paying tribute to Canada’s Prime Ministers in 2012 and the Clerks of the Privy Council in 2013, the Public Policy Forum is returning to its tradition of recognizing Canadians from all sectors and regions of the country,” said David Mitchell, President and CEO of the Forum. “These honourees represent the highest standards of accomplishment, leadership, and service to their respective fields and to their country.”
