CEO Karen Minden awarded the Order of Canada

“Hello all:

It is with great respect, that I announce that Karen Minden, our CEO, was awarded the “Order of Canada” yesterday. The “Order of Canada” is Canada’s highest civilian honour and is awarded annually for outstanding achievement and service in various fields of human endeavour.

In the brief biographical notes about Karen, on the Governor General of Canada’s website, it specifically mentions her work in adolescent treatment and her founding of Pine River Institute.

This is a tremendous honour and clearly well deserved. On behalf of all the staff, I would like to congratulate Karen for this recognition and thank her for her unwavering commitment to adolescents and their families.”

John Fallis

Executive Director
