OTTAWA, Ontario, April 14, 2008 — The Honourable Monte Solberg, Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), announced today the appointment of André Plourde to CMHC's Board of Directors. Mr. Plourde will sit on the board as a representative of the Quebec Region.

“Mr. Plourde brings to the position extensive experience in urban development and real estate,” said Minister Solberg. “I am confident that Mr. Plourde's expertise will be of tremendous value to CMHC and the millions of Canadians that the Corporation serves.”

Mr. Plourde has been the President of Groupe immobilier de Montréal Inc., one of Montréal's largest commercial real estate companies, since 2001.
