Two new faces at ONPHA
Isaac Coplan, Education Coordinator
Isaac has always been interested in issues of homelessness and housing. His first foray into housing was doing post-disaster recovery work in New Orleans. During his master’s studies, he focused on housing and homelessness, working at the Canadian Observatory of Homelessness. Isaac has most recently worked on a participatory research project with the Dream Team and is teaching ‘Homelessness in Canadian society’ at Ryerson. Isaac is pleased to have an opportunity to share his skills and experience with ONPHA.
Isaac joined the team to replace Susan Easton, who left ONPHA for a position at the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. We wish Susan the best of luck in her exciting new role!
Gary Kane, Web Communications Coordinator
Gary is a web and graphic designer by trade, and has been creating websites since 1993. Gary enjoys extremes and has worked in balmy Miami with a travel reservation agency and a cruise association, as well as in chillier Ottawa and Toronto. He is committed to working in the non-profit sector and believes in the necessity of social housing. When he’s not at work, Gary cycles and spends time with his Australian Sheppard.
Nadia Van, our previous web communications coordinator, left ONPHA this spring to return to school full-time. We’ll miss her talent and wish her success in her studies.
