Episode #14: Janice Filmon

July 1, 2023

1:17:21 minutes


“The whole thing was just an adventure from the beginning. Except that in the centre of it all and what it’s about is people. It really is. It’s about people, it’s about relationships, about how you treat others and to this day I would still say that.”

The Honourable Janice Filmon DID say that and you are in luck because she has a lot more to say than just that, in this episode of “Mental Health for Performance”.

She was Manitoba’s twenty-fifth Lieutenant Governor – only the second woman to hold the post in the province’s history.  She is married to former Premier of Manitoba, The Honourable Gary Filmon, they have four children, plus many grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She was born and raised in Winnipeg. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics from the University of Manitoba.  She worked as a social worker with the Children’s Aid Society before finding her true calling in the voluntary sector and she was inducted into the Order of Manitoba in 2007 and the Order of Canada in 2013!!

She is so many things – but perhaps the greatest thing about her is that she is real and she truly cares about making a difference.… and you will FEEL that when you listen.

“At the center of it all is that it’s about people. It’s about relationships and how you treat them.”
