Mr. Bruce Montador

Mandate: June 2017 - June 2020

Mr. Montador is very familiar with the work of the AfDB and the ALSF, as he was the Executive Director representing Canada, China, Korea and Kuwait at the AfDB from 2007 to 2011, the period when the ALSF was set up. Prior to that, he was Vice-President, Multilateral Programs at the Canadian International Development Agency, and thus responsible for Canada's relations with the AfDB, and before that as General Director, International Trade and Finance at the Canadian Department of Finance, he was the Alternate Governor for Canada of the AfDB (and the other regional development banks). Currently, in addition to his work with the ALSF, Mr. Montador is Chair of the Africa Study Group of the National Capital Branch of the Canadian International Council and Board member and Treasurer of CODE, a Canadian NGO promoting literacy and children's book publishing in Africa.
