CAH has a new Assistant Executive Director
The Board of Directors of Centres d’Accueil Héritage (CAH) is very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Paul Lapierre as Assistant Executive Director of CAH, in support of our Executive Director Barbara Ceccarelli.

Lapierre is a dynamic and bilingual executive with extensive experience in government relations, community action in the non-profit sector and communications. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated his ability to develop successful partnerships with many stakeholders, effectively guide public policy, mobilize communities and promote social change.

Paul worked for several years at the Canadian Cancer Society as Vice-President, Public Affairs and Cancer Control, managing government relations and communications for the development of cancer control policy and cancer information services for Canadians. He has also worked as Executive Director of the Canadian AIDS Society, where he was responsible for implementing a strategic plan and developing strong relationships with key stakeholders, including government officials and other HIV/AIDS organizations.

We are confident that he will fit perfectly into the CAH team as he is a creative and inclusive leader who believes in teamwork and public responsibility that can easily adapt to the ever-changing reality. With him, CAH clients, caregivers and employees will benefit from one more person who listens to their needs and our partners will find an ally committed to our vision of supporting the Francophone community in its desire to age well in French in Toronto.


CAH is a not for profit organization serving French-speaking adults in the Greater Toronto Area. Since 1978, CAH
has been providing affordable housing to the elderly and people living with HIV/AIDS at Place Saint-Laurent, whose
135 apartments include 100 subsidized units. The range of services available includes case management, day services
