Pauline Tardif

Alzheimer Society of Canada
Chief Executive Officer
Pauline Tardif is the Chief Executive Officer of the Alzheimer Society of Canada. Pauline co-chairs the federal Ministerial Advisory Board on Dementia established by the Minister of Health in 2018. The Advisory Board is providing evidence-informed advice on current and emerging issues, and on challenges and opportunities to help improve the lives of persons living with dementia. Input from the Advisory Board will also be a valuable contribution to Canada's National Dementia Strategy.

As a caregiver of a parent living in advanced stages of dementia, Pauline also brings first-hand knowledge of the impacts of the dementia on individuals, families and communities. She values ensuring that the individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are meaningfully engaged in the creation of the National Dementia Strategy and that their voices remain at the core of its initiatives. She has a
keen interest in ensuring that all partners in the continuum of care for persons living with dementia and caregivers work collaboratively to help Canadians on their dementia journey.

Active in communities right across Canada, the Alzheimer Society is the leading not-for- profit health organization working nationwide to improve the quality of life for Canadians affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and advance the search for the cause and cure. The Society works with Canadian municipal, provincial and federal governments on dementia public policy and influence health and social programs that directly affect people living with dementia. As one of four founding members of Alzheimer’s Disease International, they work collectively to make dementia a global health priority, raise
awareness and increase investments in research.
