Changes in Organizational Structure at Central Office

The Canadian Cancer Trials Group is currently in the process of reviewing and revising how we are structured and where leadership responsibilities rest. As of November 23, 2009, steps have been taken to realign leadership aspects of the organization on an interim basis. By March 31, 2010, we will have finalized this process and will at that time inform you of the changes we have made.

As of November 23, 2009, Ms. Belinda Vandersluis, the previous Operations Director, and Ms. Bev Koski, the previous Manager of the Quality Assurance Office, are no longer with the Canadian Cancer Trials Group. We are grateful for the service and leadership that both have provided to the Canadian Cancer Trials Group within our Central Office and with the many individuals, organizations, and other entities with whom we interact.

The following is a summary of the current managerial leadership roles within the Canadian Cancer Trials Group:

Operations and Finance: Mr. Lawrence Cleary (
