Janice Fukakusa

Chancellor, Ryerson University

This year, Ryerson University appointed Janice Fukakusa as its Chancellor, making her the first woman to ever hold the position. A financial services expert, innovation champion and diversity leader, Fukakusa will be the ceremonial head of the university, act as an ambassador for Ryerson on local, national and international levels, preside at all convocations and confer university degrees. Fukakusa served previously as RBC’s Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and was a member of RBC’s Group Executive responsible for setting the overall strategic direction of RBC. She retired from this role in January 2017 following a distinguished 31-year career, and will begin her official appointment with Ryerson on October 10, 2018, for a three-year term.
