Copy of Email Correspondence -
On Behalf Of Mark Hattori June 27, 2013
It is my pleasure to announce that Mr. Elden Block was the successful candidate on the
competition for the role of Statutory Director for the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement
Act. Elden has spent his 21 years as a committed Government of Alberta employee in the
service of children, youth and families, most recently serving in the capacity as a senior leader
for the North Central Alberta Child and Family Services Authority.
Elden’s experience working collaboratively with regional and provincial partners will serve us
well, specifically in his role of leading, supporting, and enhancing the legislation, policy, and
practice in Alberta’s Child Intervention sys
tem, and generally in improving outcomes for
vulnerable Albertans receiving services through Human Services and the Government of Alberta.
Elden begins his new role on July 2, 2013.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Robert Hopkins who has been acting in the
role of Statutory Director for the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act. Robert
enthusiastically stepped into the role and has provided stability and continuity for the program
during this time of transition. I look forward
to Robert’s continued contributions to the Child
Intervention system, the Ministry of Human Services, and children and families in Alberta.
Please join me in congratulating Elden and thanking Robert.
Assistant Deputy Minister
