Tina Namiesniowski, the president of the Public Agency of Canada, is stepping down from her position after just 18 months at the helm.

A letter obtained by the CBC shows Namiesniowski telling staff that she needs to "take a break" and "step aside so someone lese can step up."

"You really need someone who will have the energy and the stamina to take the agency and our response to the next level," says the letter, as obtained by the CBC.

"While responding to this crisis, we've done many things since then to add capacity, improve processes, take on new roles and really build up the competence that had diminished in recent years. All of this work has taken a personal toll on so many people... I put myself in that category," the letter reads.

The Public Health Agency of Canada, a federal agency, is tasked with running large parts of the country's COVID-19 response. A new leader may be named as early as next week.
