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.


This event will be held in Manchester, England in August of this year. J-F had applied to represent IPA Canada/R16 as a Group Leader/Mentor. 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.

In 2017, during the AGM aboard the Celebrity Summit IPA Cruise to Bermuda Jean-Francois was the recipient of the John Minarik Memorial Award. 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.
