Martha Hall Findlay is leaving her post as CEO of the Canada West Foundation to become senior vice-president and chief sustainability officer at Suncor Energy, the foundation said in a statement on Monday.
Findlay has been CEO of CWF since 2016.
Her dynamic leadership has “ensured that issues of great importance to the West and all of Canada have captured the attention of decision-makers across the country at a time when that perspective is needed more than ever,” said CWF board chair Oryssia Lennie.
Findlay said she is sad to leave but excited for the future of CWF.
“This is a particularly challenging but fascinating time for Canada's West and its place in Canada - indeed, echoing some of what prompted the formation of the CWF almost 50 years ago. Now, as it was then, the CWF is - and will continue to be - a key voice in the drive for policies that are important for the West AND for Canada. I am so proud to have been a part of this team and this important work,” she said.
