PIJAC Canada Appoints New President and CEO



PIJAC Canada welcomes Christine Carrière as its new president and CEO, effective June 29, 2020.

Carrière comes to PIJAC Canada after spending more than two decades in the fields of public administration, research and crisis communication.

Carrière held the multifaceted role as director of emergency management, environmental services and telecommunications for Bruyère Continuing Care. She has worked with over 40 teams for one of the largest organizations of its kind in Canada. There she managed a seven-person leadership team and was responsible for 125 union and non-union employees in multiple services and operations functions. 

In addition to being a strong, team-focused leader, Carrière has a deep passion for animal rights and will be a strong advocate for PIJAC Canada. Her combined experience in the non-profit sector and in community initiatives brings a renewed commitment to strengthen the vibrant and growing pet industry.

“We have together faced an unprecedented global public health crisis and, as a result, the landscape for Canadian non-profit organizations will change rapidly,” said Carrière. “PIJAC Canada is ready for this next phase. The work of the association at home and around the world will continue to focus on promoting the highest level of pet care, something that has never been more relevant and essential.”
