CNCM Welcomes our New Executive Director

The Council is pleased to announce the recent hiring of our new Executive Director, Melanie Ferris. Melanie comes to us from her previous position with the Kidney Foundation – Manitoba Branch, where she coordinated the Drop The Pop Challenge for Manitoba schools, rural screening clinics for kidney health, as well as duties related to communications and marketing.

Melanie brings to the Council her 15 years of experience working in the areas of Aboriginal health, childhood obesity, diabetes, community development, communications and food security.

Melanie Ferris is an avid gardener during Manitoba’s growing season.

We are most fortunate to have the wisdom and guidance of Viola Prowse, our retiring Executive Director, to guide Melanie through the early stages of this transition. This opportunity has been afforded us through the kind support of The Winnipeg Foundation in the form of their Mentorship Grant for Non-Profit organizations.

Please join us in welcoming Melanie to lead our engaging group of Council family and friends!
