Chief Executive Officer
(613) 234-2815 ext. 236
Mr. Brimacombe joined the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA) as Chief Executive Officer in August 2013. As the national voice of psychiatry, he is responsible for the management and execution of the organization’s strategic plan, which is focused on the public policy conversation about the future of mental health and the role of psychiatry, meeting the continuing professional development needs of members, and member communications and engagement.
From 2002-2013, Glenn was President & CEO of the Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations (ACAHO), now HealthCareCan, where he created a national voice and presence for the country’s research hospitals, academic health sciences centres and regional health authorities, and their research institutes.
From 2009 – 2014 he was Co-Chair of the Health Action Lobby (HEAL). HEAL is a coalition of 41 national health organizations focused on the role of the federal government in health and health care. He was a significant contributor to HEAL’s consensus statement The Canadian Way…Accelerating Innovation and Improving Health System Performance, released in December 2015. Glenn was Chair of the Science Media Centre of Canada from 2010-2012, and a founding member of the Canadian Health Leadership Network in 2009. He also served as a Board Director of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
He is the CPA’s representative to the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH), and played a key role in the development of their policy document Mental Health Now! released in September 2016.
Trained as an economist, Glenn has worked for the Ontario Medical Association (1988-1990), the Canadian Medical Association as Director of Health Economics (1991-2000), was a visiting senior policy analyst at Health Canada (1997-98), and was the inaugural Director of Health Programs at the Conference Board of Canada (2000-01).
Throughout his career, much of Glenn’s focus has been on a range of strategic policy issues related to the organization, management, financing and delivery of health care, in addition to the federal role in research, innovation and commercialization. In different capacities, he has focused on the identification, development and nurturing of a number of strategic alliances. He has also supported medical profession-government negotiations in several provinces. Of the 30 years working in the health sector, he has spent close to 26 working for national health organizations.
Glenn has an Honour’s (1986) and Master’s Degree (1988) in Economics from the University of Ottawa.
In his spare time, Glenn enjoys time with his family, keeping active through sport and playing music in a local band.
