THUNDER BAY – The executive director of Thunder Bay’s largest homeless shelter is leaving the organization for a job in the federal civil service.

The board of directors of Shelter House Thunder Bay announced Michelle Jordan’s departure, effective Wednesday, while wishing her well in a release Monday.

The organization said she was moving on to a position with Indigenous Services Canada, now headed by Thunder Bay-Superior North MP Patty Hajdu.

Hajdu's own tenure as Shelter House executive director overlapped with Jordan’s twelve-year career at the organization.

Operations supervisor Michelle Morgan will be the interim executive director as the Shelter House recruits a replacement for Jordan.

She will step in as the shelter manages an ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
