Patrick MacKenzie

Patrick  joined IEC-BC as the organization’s new CEO in April 2017. He has made a career of public service from coast to coast, working in policy and program areas aimed at supporting many of Canada’s most vulnerable communities through economic and social development as well as international relations.  Patrick has spent the past 11 years working for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada at its national headquarters in Ottawa and the regional offices in Vancouver. Looking to the future, Patrick’s history of working with partners on matters of immigrant economic integration, provincial nominee programs, credential recognition and labour mobility will help the organization seize new opportunities for growth, as it builds upon the successes of the past eight years.
