Michael Sanford is a retired Inspector of the Ottawa Police Service, having served 32 years in various roles. For the last 6 years he has been employed by the Federal Government in the Public Safety Portfolio.
He is the president of Somali Hope Foundation since its inception in 2008, providing leadership, fund raising campaigns, and strategic planning.
My policing career provided me with great insight into the less fortunate people of our city. When an opportunity to develop the foundation was first brought to my attention, I immediately jumped on board. The importance of education for underprivileged boys and girls is a critical component of making positive change that will allow the children become the leaders of tomorrow.
