"I am pleased with the appointment of Mr. Grundy," said Minister Raitt. "The Centre will benefit from his extensive experience in workplace safety, his leadership and his management expertise."

Currently, Mr. Grundy is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Workers' Safety and Compensation Commission of the Northwest Territories (NWT) and Nunavut.
