A Message from COTM Council Chair

During the 2019 COTM AGM it was noted that succession planning has started in order for COTM to prepare for our Executive Director’s retirement. We wanted to clarify what that looks like in the short term.

Sharon Eadie, who has been our Executive Director for over 26 years, will retire in late 2022.  That is, her departure is not imminent.

Nevertheless, the COTM Executive Committee has begun significant work to ensure a smooth transition between Sharon and her successor.

One current aspect of the preparation was increasing the budget in the 2019-2020 fiscal year to fund additional senior professional staff. Currently, the Executive Director position is a 0.6 EFT. The added funds, which are equal to approximately another .4 EFT, will assist with managing the ever-increasing workload as well as provide for some overlap of function to support the smooth transition.

Over the next few years, members will be updated accordingly however if you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to contact COTM at 204-957-1214 or OTinfo@cotm.ca
