Niagara Parks Commission Announces
Resignation of General Manager
Niagara Falls, ON – The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) announced today that General Manager Fay Booker is resigning from the Commission.

We will build on the foundation Ms. Booker helped to establish and continue moving in a new strategic direction to ensure a strong, sustainable future for The Niagara Parks Commission,” said Janice Thomson, Chair of The Niagara Parks Commission. “In the next few weeks, I will announce plans to fill the position of General Manager on a permanent basis,” Thomson added.
