Louise Bradley

President and Chief Executive Officer, Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC)

Louise has built her career in mental health from the ground up. From her early days as a registered nurse, to her advanced degrees, hospital administration and leadership of the MHCC, Louise has been charting a new course to improve the lives of Canadians living with mental illness.

Demonstrating equal parts conviction and compassion, her transformational leadership has been recognized by the Canadian Psychological Association (Humanitarian Award, 2017), by the Canadian College of Health Leaders (Innovation Award, 2015) and by institutes of higher learning (Honorary Doctorates, Saint Mary’s University and University of Alberta). In June 2019, Ms. Bradley was invested as a member of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honour, for her contributions to advancing mental health care for Canadians.
