Who is Major-General Dany Fortin? Major-General Dany Fortin is a senior military commander in the Canadian Armed Forces. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently announced that the former commander of the NATO mission in Iraq will be in charge of COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort in the country. At present he is the chief of staff to the Canadian Joint Operations Command and Trudeau said that Fortin will command the nation’s vaccine logistics and operations within a new branch of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
As someone who has a proven leadership and extensive overseas service experience, Fortin has also had an important contribution in planning the CAF missions in pandemic-hit long-term care homes over the summer. Gen. Rick Hillier, Canada’s former top soldier and chief of defence staff who’s in charge of vaccine efforts in Ontario is happy with the federal government’s decision to assign Fortin for the task. He described Fortin as “the most incredible leader” and very capable of the new role.
