As L’Arche Saint John seeks to grow its inclusive mission in support of adults with intellectual disabilities, we invite you to join us.

This very special night will feature a fireside chat with Mr. LeBrun, followed by a question & answer session.

Marcel LeBrun is a tech executive and social entrepreneur. He is the founder of the 12 Neighbours Community, a dignified affordable housing community in Fredericton. Formerly CEO of Radian6, Senior Vice-President at Salesforce.com and Venture Partner with Real Ventures, he and his wife now work to establish charities and projects that benefit people impacted by poverty and marginalization, as well as initiatives that benefit vulnerable youth through the LeBrun Family Foundation. In addition to the 12 Neighbours Community, the foundation owns a youth summer camp, Snider Mountain Ranch in Sussex, N.B., as well as a developmental program for at-risk youth.

Mel Norton, a partner at Lawson Creamer and a community champion, is a former Mayor of the City of Saint John (2012-2016) and Councillor for Ward 3 (2010-2012).

This marquee event at Delta Hotels Saint John last year attracted more than 400 people from the business, government and non-profit communities in the region and across New Brunswick.
