Renascent’s Boards of Directors

Renascent is comprised of two strategically aligned organizations, each governed by its own Board of Directors. Renascent Fellowship is governed by the Renascent Fellowship Board of Directors and is an accredited leader in the provision of addiction treatment services in Ontario. Renascent Foundation is governed by the Renascent Foundation Board, and is dedicated to supporting the work of the Renascent Fellowship through revenue generation and asset management. Together, the two Boards of Directors work in a joint manner to provide strategic governance and direction to the organizations.

All Board members have a passion to help people recover from substance addictions so that they can reach their full potential — with compassion, respect, empathy, and understanding.

The Boards meet jointly at least quarterly to share information. We have a committee structure to guide our work. Our Annual General Meeting is held in September.
