a space of discovery

The Honourable Michael H. Wilson
It was with much sadness that we learned of the passing of The Hon. Michael H. Wilson. Michael was a founder and past Chair of Brain Canada, and remained an inspiration and a passionate champion of this organization through the years.
Canada has lost one of our greatest citizens; he will be remembered for his unwavering commitment to public life, and to serving this country with the highest standards of ethics and integrity. He worked tirelessly to raise the profile of mental health, and created the space for the public conversation about the impact of mental illness on millions of people and their families, the workplace, the economy and society.
Michael inspired our tagline “One brain. One community.,” believing in the power of people coming together to address our greatest challenges. He always sought ways to create links, and to find common ground.
All of us at Brain Canada will miss his wisdom, his energy, his grace and his humour.
We send our heartfelt condolences to his family.
