December 16, 2022

On behalf of the Canadian College of Health Leaders and its Board of Directors, we would like to congratulate Marc Bilodeau, FCCHL and Sue L. LeBeau, FCCHL on attaining Fellowship status in the College. 

The Fellowship is the highest professional designation awarded by the College and recognizes members who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, who have had an impact on the Canadian health system through their leadership and engagement, and who are motivated to continue to influence future leaders through their involvement in the Fellows Program and the CCHL.

The College officially launched a redesigned Fellowship program in June of 2021 called the Fellowship Select Program. The process of going through the Fellowship Select Program is one that includes a rigorous peer-review component. Marc and Sue enrolled to the refreshed program shortly after its launch. We are pleased to announce that they are the Fellowship Select’s first two graduates.
