Chair of the Board
David R. McElhanney, P.Eng., MBA, ICD.D
I believe in giving back to the communities we live in, something I learned at a young age from my mother. Many of us are blessed with skills and abilities that can be used to contribute to the well-being of others.

Aron Balakrishnan

Caroline Turner Hogan, MD, CCFP
During my career I have seen firsthand how important suitable housing is as a determinant of health. Assisting people to live as independently as they can fosters pride and community values. I am honored to be part of the board of Accessible Housing.

Tara Weber

Dr. John Latter MD, MPA, FRCPC
Because of my career in pediatric physiatry, I have an interest in young adults with disabilities. My hope is that with my background I can help build people’s understanding of what is needed for accessible homes in Calgary

Leanne Likness

Georg W. Paffrath, P.Eng
A society is judged by how it takes care of its most vulnerable. Accessible Housing addresses a sometimes forgotten and yet growing sector of our population. I am involved because I believe I can make a difference.

Sara Lambert

Irene Pfeiffer, CM
I volunteer as part of my commitment to give back to the community. I am not in the achievement business anymore but I do hope to make a solid contribution. I am passionate about life!

Andrew Smith, P. Eng
I believe deeply that we are capable of creating communities that enable, uplift, and are inclusive of all people regardless of circumstance. Throughout my life I have been constantly reminded of the impermanence of one’s own well being, and so I am compelled and honoured to serve in any capacity I can offer.

Denise Froese

Stephen Randall
The provision of an adequate pool of quality accessible housing is one of the important measures of a progressive, democratic and caring society. I am pleased to assist in advancing that goal.

Roger Andrews
