Pam Grant – Dec 26, 2022

Many of our retirees will have worked with Pam Grant. This summer, Pam, Tim and Pam’s mother Violet Moore joined us at the Chinguacousy Picnic. We were happy to see Pam strong enough to join us. During her year long battle, she didn’t complain, but courageously shared her journey with her friends on Facebook. She passed on December 26th, 2022 at home.

UPDATE: Pam’s Celebration of Life service will begin at 11:00 am and will be followed by a reception, both at Bramalea Alliance Church (905 Central Park Dr, Brampton).  The service will be live-streamed from the Church’s YouTube channel ( ) for those who are unable to attend in person.

CSA Group shared the following announcement with staff: It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Pam Grant on December 26th, 2022. Pam was a valued member of our CSA team for over 30 years starting in the Edmonton office in 1992. After a few years, she moved to Toronto and continued her career with CSA Group. Pam most recently held the position of Manager, Quality Systems & Process in the Toronto office.

In addition to being a respected professional, she was a kind and generous individual with a positive outlook.

We want to offer our most sincere sympathies and support to Pam’s family, her husband Tim, her friends, and all of the CSA Group employees who knew her.

A Celebration of Life Service is planned for Saturday, January 28th, 2023, 11:00 am at her home church, Bramalea Alliance Church, in Brampton.

Please keep Pam, and especially her family, in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.
