Good day all, Wikimedia Canada held its Annual General Meeting 2019  on 19 October in Montreal, Quebec with online participation as well.
We would like to introduce you 4 newly elected Board members and one re-elected Board member: - Amber Berson - Jean-Michel Lapointe - Lëa-Kim Chateauneuf - Sarah Severson - Stacy Allison-Cassin The following 3 Board members are continuing their 2-years terms until next year: - Benoit Rochon - Ha-Loan Phan - Michael David Miller Wikimedia Canada is proud to have a majority of women on its Board. We believe that we are the only Wikimedia chapter in this situation, please correct me if I'm wrong. We are also happy to welcome a member of the Board from Western Canada. We are convinced that this will help us to increase the diversity of contributors on Wikimedia projects from Canada, especially in regards to the gender gap, and to expand Wikimedia Canada's activities and reach across all of Canada. The Board will elect its new Executive Committee , including its President, at its next meeting on 4 November 2019. If you have any questions about Wikimedia Canada, do not hesitate to use the main talk page on our wiki  or to send me an email directly. Wikimedia Canada would like to thank all members that participated at the AGM and all the volunteers of the Wikimedia movement in Canada for their contributions.
