Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced two appointments to the Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) today. Jennifer Hayes has been re-appointed as a member and Robert Ingratta has been appointed as a Chairperson, replacing Alistair Johnston.
Ms. Hayes has held the position of member of the CDC since 2017. Mr. Ingratta’s recent professional experience includes being the Chief Executive Officer of the British Columbia Milk Marketing Board for over five years.
In 2016, the Government of Canada implemented an appointment process that is transparent and merit-based, to search for Canadians who reflect public sector values of respect for democracy, people, integrity, stewardship, and excellence.
