BROSSARD, QUEBEC, CANADA, October 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
--Daniel LeBlanc, Director of Supply Chain Solutions for CN Railroad (CN), was recently named a VIP member of Worldwide Who's Who. This special distinction honors individuals who have shown exceptional commitment to achieving personal and professional success.
Though Mr. LeBlanc has a long professional career with CN, and is involved in all aspects of rail-based logistic solutions for customers across multiple industries, he feels that one of his proudest achievements was creating a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide appropriate long-term housing for individuals with intellectual disabilities, such as his own adult son. Together with other parents, Mr. LeBlanc established the foundation known as "L'Appart a moi" with the objective of making this dream a reality. The project consists of several bachelor-type condominiums that will be designed to meet the needs of these individuals. As Mr. LeBlanc explained, it is crucial for special needs individuals to have safe and secure housing so that they may fully contribute to society in their own ways. Though financing such projects is always challenging, the most critical aspect of the organization is having committed, well-intentioned people at the helm. Mr. LeBlanc considers himself fortunate to be working with just such a group of dedicated parents and individuals that share this common vision. He is also grateful for the support he receives from his employer.
Mr. LeBlanc believes that everyone is entitled to a long, full, and happy life, and he and his wife plan to give their three sons the best opportunities in life while making unique provisions for their son with special needs so he may maintain his independence. Once the first complex has been constructed, Mr. LeBlanc plans to share his journey with other parents, with the hope that the Foundation's mission will be adopted by other groups across Canada.
Mr. LeBlanc received a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering in 1979. In his spare time, he is heavily involved with the Special Olympics. In three years, Mr. LeBlanc expects to have completed his first building. He will then lead the charge to build additional ones.
