Statement from Valerie Creighton on the Passing of Maurice Boucher

Toronto, September 19, 2018 - “It is with deep sadness that we advise you of the sudden passing of Maurice Boucher, the CMF’s Director of Marketing and Communications. On behalf of all of us at CMF, our most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.

An experienced marketing and communications professional, Maurice joined the CMF team in 2012 to lead our corporate communications, promotional strategies, government and public relations. Maurice was instrumental in developing strategies to elevate the profile of Canadian content and promote the various CMF programs and initiatives with stakeholders. He was very proud of the development of Eye on Canada and the great success of Encore+ and in particular, relished positioning Canadian stories and talent around the world.

An elegant and consummate professional, Maurice was a valued member of the CMF family. He was respected and admired by his team and industry colleagues both here at home and internationally. We will miss his steady hand and ironic humour, which got us through many ups and downs during his all-too-brief time with us. 

Au revoir, Maurice and travel well... We will miss you.”

To honour Maurice Boucher’s memory, donations to the Montréal Heart Institute Foundation are preferred in lieu of flowers.
