Former 211 Nova Scotia Executive Director, Mike Myette, Returns to the Helm

17 May 2023

The 211 Nova Scotia Board of Directors is pleased to announce that former Executive Director, Mike Myette, will be returning to lead 211 Nova Scotia on an interim basis while the search for a new Executive Director is conducted.

Over the course of his almost ten years with 211NS, Mike was instrumental in launching the 211 service in Nova Scotia in 2013, building partnerships with 211’s service community, and leading the process for 211 Nova Scotia’s accreditation with the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems before his retirement in 2021.

“We’re extremely fortunate to be able to call upon Mike, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience, to support a quick and seamless  transition” says Andrea Forbes-Hurley, Chair of the 211 Nova Scotia Board of Directors.

“While we are sad to see Mary-Jo Monk leave, we wish her every success in her new position. We’re confident that Mary-Jo will continue to  champion 211 Nova Scotia” continues Forbes-Hurley.

“211 Nova Scotia is an important and unique service provided by an exceptional team that helps thousands of people every year. While my decision to move on was a difficult one, I’m excited to see what the great team and Board at 211 will accomplish in the future as part of the broader service community” says Mary-Jo Monk.

211 Nova Scotia has seen a lot of changes over the last three years including the secondment of Executive Director, Jeff Fraser to the Office of the Regulator – Emergency Health Services, who has confirmed that he will not be returning at the end of his two-year term. The Board of Directors is committed to conducting a thorough search for a new, permanent Executive Director in the months ahead.

“The Board is excited for the ongoing growth and evolution of 211 Nova Scotia. We have the utmost confidence in the 211 Nova Scotia team, their ability to serve Nova Scotians, and our shared vision for the future” says Forbes-Hurley.
