Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO) has appointed Gouled Hassan as trustee for the City of Greater Sudbury (Wards 1 and 4).

Gouled Hassan was appointed until the end of the current term in the fall of 2022 after trustee Amelie Hien moved away from Greater Sudbury and resigned from CSPGNO.

Hassan is project co-ordinator at Contact interculturel francophone de Sudbury. 

As a management professional, he has worked as a project manager for the northeast at the Ontario Arts Council and Laurentian University and as an international admissions officer at Cambrian College.

At the community level, Hassan is involved in various committees related to the promotion of diversity, such as La Coalition des noirs francophones de l'Ontario, the University of Sudbury Governance Council and the AFO MREF Advisory Committee. 

He has also served on several committees as a member of the Francophone Advisory Board of Health Horizon North, Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of ACFO of Greater Sudbury, a member of the Board of Directors of the Greater Sudbury Training and Development Centre, and a member of the Governance Council of Pathways to Prosperity: Canada.

For more than 20 years, Hassan has invested his energy and passion in initiatives based on values such as inclusion, multiculturalism, innovation and accountability. 

Hassan is a strong advocate for racialized people and their integration into Canadian society. His beliefs can be summed up as follows: be yourself, go beyond your limits, be open to others and support those at risk.

Anne-Marie Gélineault, Chair of the CSPGNO, welcomes the appointment of Hassan and is confident that his knowledge and experience will benefit and advance the French-language public education system across the territory.  

“Mr. Hassan joins a dynamic team that is committed to the needs of students and staff,” she said. “We welcome him and look forward to working with him on various projects."
