Richard Filion has been the Director General of Dawson College since 2005. Long before the 2011 Chantier 3 grant that led to the formation of the community, Mr. Filion actively supported
the ideals and the precursor projects that led to the birth of SALTISE. For over 10 years he has welcomed our small group of educational innovators with nascent ideas of bringing together practitioners and educational researchers. SALTISE wishes to honour Mr. Filion because of his sustained willingness to listen, actively participate and support our efforts from a burgeoning
group to a mature community. Most of all, we are indebted to Mr. Filion for his constant moral support and unwavering belief in the promise of our community of practice.
