Regent’s Area

Meet your Regent for Canada

Message From Your ACHE Regent, Spring 2021

Warmer days, longer hours of sunshine, these signs of spring area finally upon us. Spring always brings the promise of rebirth and new beginnings. Never more welcome than after this past year. We are still restricted: our movements, our gatherings, our activities, though there is light here as well. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, more than a third of the population of Canada has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccination. 

As we move into this next season it is wonderful to look forward, to think of all that is to come and to take comfort in the knowledge that we may be able to return to missed activities soon. It is important to take stock of what we have encountered and endured as we prepare for these first new steps. It also behooves us all to make note of the changes that have served us well, to ensure that we do not lose sight of the innovations that came from these incredibly difficult days. The third wave, which is only starting to slow, is a concrete reminder that we are not able to cast aside all of our precautions and return to our pre-pandemic lives so quickly.

We have learned to value our time in a different way. We have also placed a different value on shared experiences. ACHE has helped us apply both of these to our professional activities through its first virtual Congress on Healthcare Leadership in March and through a variety of Virtual Face-to-Face program offerings that will continue through September 2021. These options continue to provide us with access to the top-quality education programs that ACHE is known for during these months where travel is not possible. These offerings also create reinvestment opportunities for travel dollars as airfare is not required! Take time to invest in yourself, recharge through learning and bring a fresh perspective to your day-to-day work with one of these excellent programs. And meet new colleagues along the way. 

As we head into spring, it’s also a perfect time to reflect on the contributions of our colleagues here in the Canadian Chapter. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Regent Awards.
