Please join MP Joyce Murray at her Friday, January 29, 2016 MP Breakfast Connections with special guest Ruth Montgomery: “A healthy society includes us all – How can public policy help us get there?”
Healthy and resilient communities are best able to respond to the multiple challenges facing humankind, here in Canada and abroad. According to the World Health Organization “Societies that enable all citizens to play a full and useful role in the social, economic and cultural life of their society will be healthier than those where people face insecurity, exclusion and deprivation.”
Ms. Montgomery has over 30 years experience leading police, justice, and public safety initiatives nationally and internationally to foster social inclusion. Ruth retired from her job as Superintendent of the Edmonton Police Service after 27 years to establish her own consulting firm. She is a Senior Associate of the International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy at UBC, and Advisor to the International Association of Women Police. Many of her efforts have focused on improving services and support for women.
Come hear Ruth share her experiences and discuss modern means of designing public policy to include all segments of society, especially our most vulnerable, to improve economic opportunity and security for Canadians.
