Program Manager/Korea

It is with some sadness that we are announcing the resignation of Maria Fulford after 13-years of being an integral part of The Children’s Bridge team. Although Maria will be deeply missed, we were also happy to hear that she is leaving to pursue an exciting career opportunity within the federal government. Maria’s last day with our agency will be Thursday, November 15th, 2018.

Since Maria joined The Children’s Bridge team in 2005, she has been a valuable and well-respected employee of our agency, and much loved by all the families that had the opportunity to work with her to grow their families over the years. The work and contribution Maria has made to the success of our agency , including the extended hours of dedication and going above and beyond the day-to-day requirements of the job are greatly honoured. We wish Maria all the best in her future endeavors.

On behalf of The Children’s Bridge staff and Board Members, please let us all wish Maria all the best for the future and bid her a happy farewell!

We would also like to welcome Bruno Jung-Millen to our Children’s Bridge team!

Bruno is a Korean-Canadian, adoptive father, and has a background in attachment, trauma and therapeutic parenting practices. He holds an Honours (Bachelor of Social Science) in Public Administration, is currently a Master of Social Work (MSW) candidate, and has recently been certified as a registered Circle of Security Parenting (COS-P) facilitator.

Bruno will officially be taking on the Korea Program Manager position as of Monday, November 19th, 2018, and has been busy training with TCB staff all week. His office hours will be Mondays from 8:30AM – 4:00PM and Wednesdays 8:30AM – 2:00PM.

Bruno can be reached by email at, or by phone at 613-226-2112 ext. 4.

We are all very excited to have Bruno join our team!
