Deborah Tunis Joined OLIP as Vice ChairFebruary 10, 2020
OLIP is thrilled to have welcomed Deborah Tunis as Vice-Chair of our 30+ member Partnership Council this summer. The OLIP Council provides strategic stewardship and oversight to OLIP’s community-based planning.
Ms. Tunis brings over 40 years of leadership experience in the Canadian public service in a variety of policy areas, including the areas of immigration, international trade, social development and housing. In 2015, Ms. Tunis was named Special Coordinator for Syrian Refugee Resettlement, helping to lead the initiative that welcomed tens of thousands of Syrian refugees to Canada. In this key role, she coordinated provinces, municipalities, settlement agencies, donors and others to provide supports to Syrian refugees.
She has a Bachelor of Journalism from Carleton, a Master of Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and an Advanced Management Programme from Oxford University.
Join us in welcoming Deborah to her new role as the Vice-Chair of OLIP! We know she will add tremendous value to OLIP’s efforts to build local capacity to attract, settle and integrate immigrants in Ottawa.
