Dear Minister Milloy:
Re: Final Report, Engagement Process for an Ontario Online Institute
I am pleased to submit my second and final report to you in my capacity as your Special Advisor for an Ontario Online Institute for the February 28 – May 1, 2011 period.
My final report contains a series of recommendations and next steps for your consideration on moving forward with the implementation of an Ontario Online Institute.
I want to express my appreciation to you, staff in your office and Ministry staff for your guidance, support and encouragement throughout this engagement process.
The past two months have been an energizing and inspiring experience for me as I engaged Ontario’s incredibly dynamic and innovative education and training sector. I thank you for the opportunity to contribute to this important initiative, and I also thank the Contact North Board of Directors for having supported me in undertaking this temporary assignment while continuing to serve as President – Chief Executive Officer.
I look forward to discussing this final report and recommendations with you in greater detail.
