CMHC appoints new CEO, chair and board of directors

OTTAWA — Coleen Volk has been appointed president and CEO of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and Don Iveson has been appointed as chair of the board of directors.

Other appointments to the board of directors for CMHC include Laurie LeBlanc, Ray Williams, Darlene Hyde, Heather Tremain and Nick Macrae.

Volk takes the helm of CMHC with decades of executive experience in the private sector and the federal and provincial public services. Her appointment as president and CEO marks a return to CMHC where she spent nine years in various leadership roles.

Iveson, founder of Civic Good, has extensive experience as a strategic adviser on climate, housing and civic innovation issues.

He served as Edmonton’s 35th mayor from 2013 to 2021 and has recently served as the co-chair for the Task Force for Housing and Climate.

The new appointees to the board bring a breadth of experience from across the housing sector including with private, public and not-for-profit organizations and associations, regulatory agencies, as well as real estate and financial institutions, and credit unions, a release states.

Volk, Iveson and the new board of directors were all appointed in accordance with the Government of Canada’s open, transparent and merit-based selection process.

Fraser thanked all of the outgoing members of the board: Navjeet “Bob” Dhillon, Linda Morris, and former chair of the board of directors Derek Ballantyne for their contributions and support to both CMHC and the Government of Canada’s housing priorities, stated the release.
