David Boisjoli has been appointed to the board of Southern Health.

The St Adolphe resident and commercial flooring contractor brings bilingualism, Metis heritage, and a history of community involvement to the table, said board chair Abe Bergen.

"We’re delighted to have both the Metis and the Francophone communities represented with David," he said.

Boisjoli is involved with St Adolphe minor hockey and is a graduate of St Norbert Collegiate, Bergen said. He also has experience with Winnipeg construction industry associations.

Boisjoli participated in his first board meeting last Friday in Steinbach, following his appointment a week earlier. His appointment fills a vacancy created by the departure of Ste Anne’s Guy Levesque.

Levesque, a former board chair, stepped down in spring. In August, Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen announced the appointment of Tammy de Rocquigny of St Claude.

Several days later, a provincial spokesperson called de Rocquigny "ineligible" for board service and said a new appointee would be selected "in the coming weeks."
