Raymond Cohen was the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the Canadian Abilities Foundation and publisher and editor-in-chief of Abilities – Canada’s Lifestyle Magazine for People with Disabilities, until his passing in the spring of 2013. He worked in the fields of health care, employment, and human services at major centres across Canada, in positions ranging from front-line worker to senior management. Mr. Cohen was founding director of the Department of Childcare at Alberta’s Children Hospital, director of Treatment for the Alcohol and Drug Commission of B.C., and founding director of Alternatives Program in Montreal and Vancouver. He will be sorely missed by many.
