Michael Lewkin

Michael Lewkin - Spirit of Thunder Bay Award 2015In his governance role as a board member and current chair of the Canadian Mental Health Association – Thunder Bay Branch (CMHA), Michael Lewkin has supported the evolution of a community-based mental health service that focuses on possibility and the hope of recovery.  His tireless volunteer hours helped shape the policy direction of the organization, and his achievements have impacted the lives of the people served by CMHA.  In his 20 years of dedicated service to the organization, Michael has served as president and past president locally, and 6 years as a provincial director for CMHC Ontario Division, becoming provincial board chair in 2015.  Michael also serves on the CMHA National Fund Development Advisory Committee.  Without the leadership of volunteers like Michael, community-based organizations would be challenged to have significant impacts on the communities they serve.  CMHA is grateful for his Michael’s contributions.
