A well-known Northern Ontario business executive has found herself a new position. 

Corina Moore, who resigned from her role as president and CEO with Ontario Northland in October of 2022, has been named the new executive vice-president for transportation and infrastructure at WSP Canada

"Corina has been a recognized leader in the transportation industry for many years,” stated Marie-Claude Duma, president and CEO of WSP in Canada, in a prepared statement.

"Her industry experience and collaborative approach make her an ideal fit to lead our transportation and infrastructure sector."

Moore is excited about the new opportunity. 

"I’m thrilled to be leading the transportation and infrastructure division at WSP, an amazing global engineering and professional services organization," she stated on social media.  

"I am so impressed with the level of skill and passion of the employees, the impact of the projects across so many important sectors, and the caring and accountable culture that I will continue to progress."

Corina spent 17 years with Ontario Northland, joining the company in 2005 as its director of telecommunications. She held multiple senior leadership positions, including chief operating officer, eventually being named president and CEO in 2014.

"Corina will be responsible for leading a Canadian Transportation and Infrastructure team that is dedicated to developing sustainable, resilient, innovative and Future Ready solutions for communities," according to a WSP release. 

Future Ready refers to WSP's approach to design that takes into account current trends and future needs of clients and the communities in which they operate.

Moore will officially join WSP on Jan. 15, 2024, and will work out of the company’s downtown Toronto office.

Selected as one of three of Canada’s Most Powerful CEOs by WXN’s Diversity Council Canada in 2021, Moore has been recognized as an influential female trailblazer who has a passion for employee engagement, innovation, exceeding customer expectations and ensuring fiscal responsibility. 

In October, Moore was named the new board chair for One Kids Place in North Bay.
