At our April 29th AGM, the following changes were made to the EMAS Canada Board of Directors:


Marcelo Garcia

Dr. Marcelo Garcia has stepped down this month after many years as board member and team leader for our Cuba project.

Dr Garcia was among the board members who oversaw our name change from Evangelical Medical Aid Society to Education Medical Aid & Service. EMAS Canada in 2009.

His connection to our past and team leader experience have been a source of practical wisdom and godly counsel for many years.

We wish him and his family God’s blessings as he begins his retirement years.


Dr. Timothy Tam, Dentist, who leads the Indonesia team and is one of our collaborators with EMAS Hong Kong is joining the board.

Dr. Tam is a mentor to dental students at the University of  British Columbia and is an active member of the Vancouver chapter of the Christian Medical and Dental Association.

He comes to us with many years of experience in medical missions to south-east Asia, and as leader of a successful dental practice whose own children are now respected dentists in Vancouver BC.
