RSO Regional Structure Changes

Below is a message from Yves Bédard, National Director RSMC operations, sent earlier this morning. A meeting will be held at National Level on September 25th 2013 in order to determine the impact on our own members.


With the upcoming end of the Rural Delivery safety project and to help stabilize and improve the RSMC operations in the regions, I am please to announce a change in the Rural Service organisation that will be implemented over the next few months. 

The Regional Rural Operations Support team will be reporting to 3 regional managers:

•     Eastern / Atlantic : Sylvie Prud’homme

RSOs currently reporting to Dave Fillmore in Atlantic and all Eastern RSOs will report to Sylvie

•     Central: Anna Hornburg

All RSOs currently working in Central will report to Anna

•     Western: Manager position is currently in the process of being staffed

All RSOs currently reporting to Blair Davis will report to this new manager. 

In the meantime, all RSOs will continue to report to their current managers and the new regional Rural Operations managers will be preparing for the transition and introducing themselves to the team. 

With some of the improvements expected over the upcoming months on eVoucher, RSRMS, introduction of the new Georoute 2014 for RSMCs, and others we will be reviewing some of the current activities done by RSOs and adjust the work effort accordingly. 

I will keep you inform of the updates as they are known and finalized.

Yves Bédard
