It is with sadness that I announce the passing of our friend
and colleague, Janis Doran.
She passed away on December 21
after a courageous and lengthy fight against illness.
Since 1987, Janis had a long and distinguished career in the
Service with the Department of
Communications and Industry Canada. As an employee of the Strategic Policy
Sector (SPS) and of the Information Technology, Telecommunication and Spectrum
Sector (SITT), she notably proudly represented Canada and the Department at
many of the events and landmark conferences of the International
Telecommunication Union. She was held in high regards for her work, as a
professional colleague, a friend to many and as a person.
For her devotion, her commitment, her
concern for others and her attention to details, Canada has lost a very
important expert in international relations. She will be greatly missed by her
family, at work and by the international community.
To celebrate her life, pay our respect and support her family
(notably, her husband Terry and her
children), a memorial service will be held on Tuesday, 30 December at 11am at
Trinity United Church, 1099 Maitland Avenue (South of the Queensway).
Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones.
