Board of Directors

CanFASD has a diverse volunteer board that represents the stakeholder communities with which we engage. We strive to be “difference makers”, individuals who, on a national level, want to engage in making a difference for those with FASD.

From everyone at CanFASD, we would like to welcome Howard. We are happy to have him join us and share his expertise! If you would like to get involved with the Network, please check out our open positions.
