Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute Appoints Executive Director

Dr, Sunayana Singh, President of the Shastri Indo Canadian Institute (SICI), is pleased to announce the appointment of Rick Butler as its new Executive Director.

“Our institute is very pleased to have someone of Rick’s capacity to help us advance to our next level. Shastri has some very exciting ideas and plans and we hope Rick will help us move our plans and organization forward.”

Mr. Butler has worked in a variety of cross cultural settings as an executive manager for several first nations in Canada and Canada’s newest territory of Nunavut. Most recently, as founding Executive Director of the Calgary Regional Partnership, Rick helped this complex member organization develop a 70-year land use, economic and infrastructure plan for a region of 15,000 sq km and 1.2 Million residents. The Plan positions the Calgary region as a global leader in environmental stewardship and economic development.

“I am excited to help advance Shastri’s inspiring vision;” said Mr. Butler. “My work begins in earnest at Shastri’s member council meetings in Ottawa and New Delhi over the next few weeks. Rick went on to say that he looks forward to meeting with or hearing from each and every Shastri member and working to make sure Shastri is meeting their needs.

Shastri Indo Canadian Institute (SICI) is a unique bi-national organization of over 70 Canadian and Indian universities promoting ties between India and Canada through scholarly activities, academic and cultural exchange, and applied research. Shastri has an office at the University of Calgary and New Delhi. Mr. Butler will begin his work with Shastri on May 28th as he winds down his responsibilities with the Calgary Regional Partnership over the next month.
