On behalf of the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation (LWDHF) Board of Directors I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mira Trebilcock, BA, MSc, to the position of Executive Director, effective June 6, 2022.
Mira is an experienced nonprofit advancement professional, who brings a strong track record of success working in fundraising, business development and communications.

She adds, “Healthcare professionals have been unwavering in their commitments to their patients, families and communities during these trying years. I am excited for the opportunity to enhance the hospital’s ability to touch lives. With ever-evolving technology, there’s never been a time in which the impact of philanthropy in health and medical sciences has been greater.”
Mira’s career has combined her passion for sports with a deep engagement in philanthropy. “My family and I always felt it was important to be involved in the community and I admire people who give back, either through time or through financial support. I am incredibly excited to return to Northern Ontario. I love the community; it is built on a spirit of hard work and people coming together for a shared goal.”
Mira holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lake Forest College and a Master of Science from the University of Regina. Mira loves spending time outdoors with her family, including her spouse, Meaghan and 11-month-old daughter, Bowen.
