It is with a profound sense of sorrow and regret that the Institute informs you of the passing of our friend and colleague, Ursula Purvis.

Ursula passed away on August 19, 2016.

Serving the Institute for three decades in such roles as steward, Consultation Team member, and Branch President, Ursula was also a member of the Institute Board of Directors from 1985 to 1995.

For many years, Ursula served on the Executive of the CFIA–S&A Group and as a delegate to the Institute's Annual General Meeting.

Ursula worked as a microbiologist analyst at Heath Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
