Brian W. Porter, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed., is the owner and Director of LAS in the Regions of York, Simcoe and Georgina and an advisor to Living Assistance Services.
He has enjoyed a successful and lengthy career in the service sector, first in education as a high school teacher and head of national and international schools and, later, in fundraising as the Director of Development and Alumni Relations in European and UK universities. Effective marketing, business development and public and community relations have been important functions in each of his roles. Brian has also served as a director on theatre boards in Calgary and Winnipeg and on the board of an international charity in the UK. Brian holds three university degrees from Carleton University, McGill University and the University of Toronto. As the population ages in Canada and the ‘grey tsunami’ now has become a reality, Brian strives to make it much easier for people to be able to grow older happily and safely in comfort and with dignity where they really always want to remain – in their own homes!
