France Lemieux honoured for contribution to Canada’s plumbing industry
August 28, 2014
The Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing (CACP) presented the 13th Joseph K. Seidner Award to France Lemieux, head of the materials and treatment section of the water and air quality bureau at Health Canada, at the annual Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing meeting in Fredericton, NB on August 19.
Lemieux has been an integral part of the standards development community, participating on several committees, task groups and industry advisory bodies over the years. Her most notable recent accomplishments include her role on the Council of Public Health Consultants at NSF, and working with industry to smoothly integrate the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act into the regime of plumbing regulations, codes and standards.
The Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) established the award in November 2000 to honour Joe Seidner’s legacy in the standards community. Seidner, who was the first recipient of the award, passed away in 2003.
