In Memoriam: Doug Heath

It is with a profound sense of sorrow and regret that the Institute informs you of the passing of our friend and colleague, Doug Heath. Doug passed away on April 9, 2016. Doug’s commitment to Institute members was deep and unwavering. He will be missed.

Doug was a loyal and hard-working member of the Commerce Group, who liked to come to the aid of his colleagues. He helped members deal with issues such as difficult work situations, getting answers to their questions and obtaining information concerning issues that affect them.

For many years, Doug served on the Executive of the Commerce Group and as the Group’s delegate to the Institute’s Annual General Meeting.

PIPSC presented Doug with the Institute Service Award in 1994.

In 1999, Doug’s vision helped make the Scholarship Program a reality.

As President of the Commerce Officers Group, Doug was responsible for the frugal use of the Group’s budget which generated $75,000 to create the Scholarship Fund.

The Institute extends its condolences to Doug’s family and to the many friends who were privileged to know him.

Condolences and memories can be expressed online.
