Statement from Institute of Health Economics mourning the loss of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

The Institute of Health Economics Board of Directors and staff joins other Canadians and Albertans in mourning the loss of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on September 8th, 2022.

When she assumed the role of Queen of the United Kingdom on February 6th, 1952 she also became Head of State for Canada and has been a consistent figure in key moments in Canadian and Alberta history and in all our lives.

Queen Elizabeth visited Canada more times than any other Commonwealth country, the last time in 2010. On that visit she said, “This nation has dedicated itself to being a caring home for its’ own, a sanctuary for others and an example to the world".

We hope we can continue to support such sentiments through our ongoing work.

Rest in peace Your Majesty.
