imagesThe Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) and IRIS, the Institute for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society, have announced that Dr. Michael Bach, current Executive Vice-President of CACL, will assume the role of full-time Managing Director of IRIS.

“Dr. Michael Bach, current Executive Vice-President of CACL, will be moving into the Managing Director role on a full-time basis so that he can devote his time more completely to the Institute’s renewal, and its research and development priorities. These include the right to legal capacity and supported decision making, safeguards to protect vulnerable persons in the emerging system for medically-assisted death, and accelerating the transformation of community services to enable more individualized, empowering and inclusive approaches to supporting people with intellectual disabilities and their families across Canada. Dr. Bach brings internationally-recognized expertise to these issues and has been in the role of Managing Director on a part-time basis for several years”.
