Dear Forsyth family:

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the passing of Joel. I was privileged to get to know Joel shortly after I arrived at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, and required the set up of a new computer, cell phone, and all the other modern tools that an office worker needs to do the job. Joel quickly helped me get sorted out and kept me on track thereafter, whenever something with the technology seemed to go off the rails.

It was always a relief to know that Joel was on the case, not just because you knew the problem was going to be resolved, but because of how cheerfully he handled every request. Joel was not just a true IT professional, but also a lovely presence in the office, generous with his time, and always willing to lend a hand. He was a friend to all of us and his passing has been felt by all.

To loosely paraphrase Lincoln, I am aware that nothing I could write would relieve you of the burden of your grief, but perhaps it would come as some small consolation to know the many ways in which Joel helped to brighten the days of his fellow public servants at ISED. He will be missed by all of us.

With my deepest sympathies,

Simon Kennedy

Joel, you were a truly positive and vibrantly alive person, the one I would turn to for all sorts of volcanoes erupting. You are leaving a huge void, but looking back I can only be grateful to have had the opportunity to meet you, work with you and benefit from your immense generosity in helping others. It was cruelly too short, but it was a life well lived, and for that, I salute you. My deepest condolences to Joel family and friends.

Joel was an amazing person, vibrantly nice and always there to help others - the reassuring presence that meant it would all be OK. My condolences.

Dear Mr. Forsyth,

My name is Ana Maia and I am the Corporate Secretary at ISED.

Joel worked for us in supporting our two Ministers’ offices, the Deputy Ministers‘ offices and my whole team of about 70 people.

I apologize for delay in reaching out but, on behalf of my management team and team members, we have collected some monies and we will be buying a tree and donating to your charity of choice.

Joel’s passing has had a huge impact on all of us. I am in receipt of many words of sadness but also appreciation of your son’s contributions to the team, including many former staff in the Ministers’ offices as well as from my team. He was well liked and his willingness to help was second to none! He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all of us here in the office.

On a personal note, Joel always made me laugh, was super helpful and always told me “you go girl” (you can hear him can’t you?).
He was always a cheerleader and extremely positive which was greatly appreciated.

As a parent myself, I can only begin to imagine how you feel with Joel’s passing. I hope over the last few days you have found solace in the many messages you have undoubtedly received about how amazing Joel was and found joy and laughter in the many memories you and your family have shared with him.

On behalf of everyone in the Office of the Corporate Secretary at ISED, please accept our deepest condolences. We are thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

If there is anything you wish to know, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!

Take care and all the best,


Ana Maia
