Wonderful news for IPA Canada, as well as Region 16! Jean-Francois Leblanc, Director for New Brunswick and our Membership Coordinator has been accepted as a participant at this summer’s International Youth Gathering.

As such, he will represent Canada at the event, and will be in a position to assist event organizers to ensure that his team is well looked after. Jean-Francois, as one of the youngest members of our region has been instrumental in attracting many new young law enforcement officers to join the ranks of the IPA. As Membership Coordinator, he works tirelessly to keep our membership numbers at or near the top of all Regions in Canada. We know that he will lead his Team in a very professional manner and will demonstrate and inspire leadership in his young group.

Over the past several years since becoming a member of the IPA he has continuously represented the Organization in a very positive light, and as recognized by the award, has displayed outstanding service and devotion to the IPA.

It is with great sadness that our friend and founder Reverend Charles Wright on January 20th 2016 at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario Canada.
Charles went peacefully in his sleep on his first night at the hospital.  He was 90 years old, he leaves his wife Sheila, two sons Graham and David and one grand-son.
Charles retired from our National Executive at our last AGM in May 2015 because of his medical condition. He will be missed as he was not only the founder of our Section in 1961 but stayed active since and was a good friend, a wise man with a good sense of humour.  Also a good friend of Arthur Troop, Charles was also responsible for bringing IPA to the USA.
