In Memoriam

It is with great sorrow we inform you that Linda MacKinnon, one of our Trustees, passed away in December 2015.

Appointed by OPSEU in 2013, Linda was a dedicated and conscientious member of our Board of Trustees, and was strongly committed to ensuring that the interests of the Plan’s members were considered and represented in the Board’s decisions. Linda’s contributions to OPTrust were many, including her roles on the Board’s Governance and Administration, and Human Resources and Compensation Committees. A voice of social conscience, Linda was deeply committed to our mission and was a strong advocate for OPTrust’s responsible investment program, employee recognition, diversity and an inclusive workplace.

Linda will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of working with her and knowing her. In Linda’s honour, we have renamed our top staff recognition award after her.
