Message from the Chair

Congratulations to ACCESS for another successful year of operations!

As we reflect on the various challenges our community has faced this past year with the Covid 19 Pandemic, the ACCESS team have all rallied together to continue our goals of supporting our Urban Indigenous Community members adapt and meet their employment goals with as little disruption as possible.

Our president, CEO and our professional staff, partnerships and stakeholders are truly the foundations of our success-they bring inspiration, creativity, loyalty, resiliency and support to the Board of Directors that enables us to make informed decisions. We, as a board, are extremely proud of the ACCESS staff, who work together as a team to deliver quality services to our diverse urban Indigenous People.

Congratulations to Employment Services, ACCESS Trades, BladeRunners, Essential Skills for Aboriginal Futures, ACCESS Programs and Finance!! You make us proud!

I would also like to recognize and acknowledge the Board of Directors who give so willingly of their time to serve ACCESS, they are all very busy individuals who are Executive Directors/CEOs of their own organizations and yet make time to give back to community by serving on a governing board for ACCESS.  Thank you for your commitment, dedication and leadership; it is an honor to serve you.

Congratulations again to all involved, a job well done in such challenging times.
