Serving on the Board since 2013, Ms. Tina Buchan is the Chair of the Buchan International Fund which supports various projects with a special interest in the building of community health centers in highly impoverished and underserviced areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Previously, Ms. Buchan served on the Canadian National Institute for the Blind camp’s Board and was part of a successful renovation of the camp in Muskoka. She was also active with the Canadian Paraplegic Association and the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
Mrs. Buchan is Board Champion of both Arthritis and Mental Health. The Buchan family was the lead donor for the arthritis campaign and therefore instrumental in making the Buchan Arthritis Research Centre, a reality. Her support of the largest study ever conducted into repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, recently published in Lancet medical journal, has in part contributed to the very recent establishment of a Poul Hansen Centre for Depression at UHN Toronto Western Hospital. Mrs. Buchan is a member of the Nominating and Governance Committee.
