L’Arche Canada Foundation Welcomes a New President & CEO


We are pleased to announce that Mr. Gary Sim has joined the L’Arche community as the President and CEO of L’Arche Canada Foundation.  Gary comes to L’Arche with a wealth of fundraising experience, having served as President of North York General Hospital Foundation, Baycrest Foundation and most recently Reena Foundation. Gary graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University and began his career in Marketing with Nabisco, Pilsbury and American Express before making the move to the not-for-profit sector.

Gary will lead the work of the LCF Capital Campaign, and help us achieve the fundraising goals necessary for the L’Arche communities to meet their expansion, training and support roles, both within Canada and around the world.  In his role as President, Gary will be the key LCF representative to our major funding partners, and the liaison between L’Arche Canada, L’Arche International, and the foundation.

Please join us in giving Gary a warm welcome to the L’Arche community.
