Nass Valley resident named to health authority board

A NASS VALLEY resident has been named to the board of the Northern Health Authority.

Maurice Squires is a program director with the Nisga'a Lisims Government and is very active in his community as the Vice-President of the Aboriginal Child Care Society. Maurice has authored several publications and holds a bachelor's and master's degrees in social work from the University of Victoria.

He joins Ben Sander, a Senior Partner of Sander Rose Bone Grindle LLP Chartered Accountants, who is also newly appointed to the board of the authority which runs health care services across northern BC.

"Maurice and Ben are two exceptional leaders in their communities and the province and will be a tremendous asset to Northern Health," said Dr. Charles Jago, Northern Health Authority board chair. "Their addition to the board ensures that our health care is led by northerners, for northerners."
