Effective September 1, 2019, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) Board of Directors has elected Alan Spacek as Board Chair. Mr. Spacek joined the MPAC Board in May of this year and succeeds Dan Mathieson, Mayor of the City of Stratford, who served as Chair since 2010.
“We’re delighted to welcome Alan as our new Board Chair as we approach the 2020 province-wide Assessment Update,” said MPAC President and Chief Administrative Officer Nicole McNeill. “Alan brings a wealth of valuable business and municipal sector experience, and I am confident that under his leadership the MPAC Board will continue to make a positive difference in our commitment to creating value for the people of Ontario.”
