Suzanne Le

Executive Director, Multifaith Housing Initiative

Suzanne Le joined Multifaith Housing Initiative, a federally incorporated charitable housing provider, as Executive Director in 2013. Since that time, she has led the organization in a period of rapid growth – doubling MHI’s membership, more than tripling MHI’s unit count and operational budget. In addition to overseeing the construction and operations of the award-winning Haven community, Suzanne has led the creation of MHI’s Veterans’ House project, and the creation of the separate charity, Veterans House Canada. She is known as an inspirational and ethical leader and a champion for diversity and inclusion in the workplace. She is passionate in her pursuit for social justice, and with a strong belief that “everything is possible.”

Suzanne serves as past president of the Ontario Non Profit Housing Association Board and sits on the Social Housing Registry of Ottawa Board. Suzanne has her Masters degree in Conflict Studies from Saint Paul University in Ottawa, and has a Bachelors degree in Comparative Religion from Carleton University where she received a Senate Medal for Outstanding Academic Achievement. Her research and academic studies into the core causes of conflict has led her personal quest for those most at risk in our society and her stance that everyone, regardless of background, deserves an equal opportunity in life.
