The Canadian College of Health Leaders is proud to announce that Tom Maston, CHE, Former Deputy Minister of Health at the New Brunswick Department of Health, has been named recipient of the 2020 Mentorship Award.
Tom Maston has demonstrated extraordinary commitment, professionalism and effectiveness as both a health leader and a mentor over the course of his 28 years of dedicated public service in New Brunswick.
In October 2019, Tom officially retired after serving almost 6 years as Deputy Minister of Health.
With a career spanning various levels and sectors of the health system, Tom’s influence and leadership have had a significant impact on many of those within it. He has served as a positive role model, supporting and inspiring the professional development and leadership capacity of many with whom he worked, both within NB and beyond.
Tom's mentees note that he always supported and sought ways to challenge them. He provided appropriate and meaningful experiences and assignments for them to expand and demonstrate their own leadership capabilities. He was encouraging and acknowledged their strengths, instilling confidence in their own abilities.
The Mentorship Award is presented to a leader in the healthcare system who demonstrates exemplary, sustained commitment to mentoring, and inspiring healthcare leadership.
