Gavin will serve as Vice-Chair of the Canadian Red Cross and as Chair of its Governance Committee from 2014 to 2016. Gavin has spent more than a decade giving back
through his work for the Canadian Red Cross, concentrated in the areas of domestic disaster relief, the rehabilitation of Canadian indigenous peoples’ communities and mother and child health in sub-Saharan central Africa. The Canadian Red Cross recognized Gavin’s work when it honoured him with its national Distinguished Service Award for 2012.
