It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Rick Wilson.
From 1994 to 2007, Rick served as the Executive Director of the Canadian Association for Environmental Analytical Laboratories (CAEAL). In 2008 CAEAL became CALA, with Rick assuming the role of CALA’s first Chief Executive Officer before retiring later that year.
Rick’s visionary leadership steered the organization through significant milestones, including a partnership with the Standard Council of Canada; the launch of the CALA Training Service; the transition to a to full-service Accrediting Body; the establishment of three prestigious awards, and a major re-branding effort.
Rick's leadership style fostered success among volunteers and staff, benefiting the organization and its members. He provided guidance for all to thrive, making him an inspirational, motivating, forgiving, dedicated, and unassuming leader by any definition.
His legacy will forever inspire us all.
A service for Rick will be held
