We mourn the death of Charlie Fischer, who passed away in Calgary on June 17, 2020 at the age of 70. A member of CIFAR’s Board of Directors from 2011-2014 and a long-time donor, Fischer generously supported CIFAR with invaluable advice and time.
“Charlie was a one-of-a-kind man who cared deeply about his country and the people who mattered to him,” says Alan Bernstein, CIFAR President & CEO. “Our conversations were always enlightening and I will miss his energy, his passion, and his wise advice.”
A full obituary was published in the Calgary Herald on June 23, 2020.
CIFAR is a registered charitable organization supported by the governments of Canada, Alberta and Quebec, as well as foundations, individuals, corporations and Canadian and international partner organizations.
