Biography

I am a privileged person. For a number of years now, I have lived all over Canada and the world, and worked with some of the most wonderful people you can imagine.

As a communication consultant and social activist, I have shared the frustrations and rewards of working with good people to advance economic and social rights for everyone.

Now I want to do more to create a Canada in which everyone is proud and prosperous. As a communications manager and consultant, I have facilitated dialogue and decision making with diverse groups  of people. I have been able to help create understanding, awareness and consensus where differences and disagreements prevailed before.

In my community I have been a promoter of community economic development and particularly of social enterprise. I have been on the Board of  of Inner City Renovation for over a decade, which advocates for social enterprise and worker ownership through high quality building renovation.  www.innercityrenovation.ca

Until recently I was the Executive Director of the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg. The Council has been a defender of the rights of low income residents of the City for over 90 years. Today we face huge challenges in the struggle to eliminate poverty and social exclusion.

I welcome comments and suggestions on what I am doing.

  1. Hi Dennis..

    I have some question regarding InnerCity Renovations…particularly with the accounting/GM returning phone calls and emails. Perhaps since you are still on the Board with them, perhaps you could encourage them to call Redwood Painting and Decorating, we still have outstanding business.

      My apologies. I rarely check these messages so only saw this message today.
      I am no longer associated with Inner City. Regrettably! So I cannot help.
      I hope by now you have connected with Dan or Alain Molgat the chair of the Board.
      If you still need information please call me at 793 3289
      Dennis

    Hey,Denny, just read about you on the internet. I am sitting with Perry and Lois Miller in Arizona. God bless you always, LuAnn Holden Siekas

    • I am amazed. So good to hear from you folks. It has been such a long time.
      I hope you are all well. Can I assume you are enjoying retirement and the warmth of Arizona!!!!
      Do you keep in touch with Jane? I have not talked to her in 20 years.
      I would love to reconnect and hear what life has provided you.
      Dennis
