Samantha Horn, Chair of the Halton Healthcare Board of Directors, is pleased to announce the appointment of Indira Naidoo-Harris as the newest member of the Board.

Indira Naidoo-Harris brings a wealth of experience to Halton Healthcare’s Board of Directors. Her multifaceted career as a successful politician, broadcaster and prominent public advocate positions her as a valuable addition to the Board. Notably, Indira served as the Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) for Halton from 2014 to 2018, where she held a wide range of portfolios, including the historic role of Ontario’s first Minister of the Status of Women. Presently, she serves as the Associate Vice President of the Office of Diversity and Human Rights at the University of Guelph, embodying a commitment to foster a culture of inclusion and ensuring fair and expeditious issue resolution.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have someone with Indira’s breadth of experience join our Board. Her energy and leadership will be a tremendous asset as we continue to move forward with our organization’s strategic plan,” notes Samantha Horn.

Naidoo-Harris’ impactful representation extends to national and international platforms. In 2022, she was named one of Canada's top 100 most powerful women by the Women's Executive Network and in January 2023, travelled to the World Economic Forum in Davos to advocate for gender equity in leadership and building a strong path forward on this important issue.

A seasoned communicator, Naidoo-Harris has made significant contributions as a national and international news anchor, television host and producer. Indira's dedication extends to her role on various boards, including the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (Canada).

“We expect Indira’s expertise and guidance will help enhance our collective efforts in providing exemplary healthcare to our communities,” concludes Horn.
