Catherine Mitchell is the MHCA’s policy analyst and has oversight of the association’s communications strategy and projects.

Catherine joined the MHCA in 2016, following 30-plus years with the Winnipeg Free Press as a journalist. Her last 16 years at the Free Press, she was a member of the editorial board, during which time she received a National Newspaper Awards merit citation for her writing.

She draws upon experience in public policy, and editorial and commentary writing in her responsibilities at the MHCA for policy analysis, advocacy, community and government relations, communications and issues management.

Catherine has direct oversight of MHCA’s media relations, publications and printed materials, including the association’s annual report, bi-annual supplement in the Winnipeg Free Press and the Heavy News Weekly, the industry’s go-to news source. She is a resource to numerous association committees, and regularly attends industry and business events in the community to keep the association’s members on top of economic and community developments.
