Staffing for Canada Week

Last week was Staffing for Canada Week.  The annual event is celebrated by members of the Association of Canadian Search, Employment and Staffing Services to acknowledge the more than 400,000 people who are employed in the staffing profession in Canada. ACSESS members represent 85 percent of the staffing volume in Canada.

Our team celebrated with a take out picnic lunch in a park near our Yaletown neighbourhood, then a nice walk along the seawall back to the office. We all enjoyed this fun way to celebrate with our great team of recruiters and staff.

 

Staffing for Canada Week

This week is Staffing for Canada Week.  The annual event is celebrated by members of the Association of Canadian Search, Employment and Staffing Services to acknowledge the more than 400,000 people who are employed in the staffing profession in Canada.

Our office celebrated with a pot luck lunch and then a handful of us went for a nice walk along the seawall in Yaletown. Great way to celebrate with our fun team of recruiters.

GrapeJuice raises $67,000 for Big Sisters

We are happy to announce that last night’s Grape Juice event at Society in Yaletown raised $67,000 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

Since 2007, GrapeJuice has raised $161,900 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

A highlight of the evening was when Fred Lee conducted our Sponsor-A-Match live auction, which alone, raised $24,50 in a matter of minutes. The Grape Juice guests were entertained by Fred’s enthusiasm.

CameronMcNeill.com and McNeill Nakamoto created Grape Juice to raise much needed funds to facilitate the matching process for over 190 at risk young girls on the Big Sisters waitlist.

Big Sisters of BC lower Mainland matches volunteer mentors with young girls who face a multitude of challenges. Many of the young children suffer from low-self esteem and social isolation due to poverty, abuse or neglect. For every Little Sister that is successfully matched with a volunteer mentor, a quiet revolution of hope takes place. It costs $2,000 to make and maintain one Big & Little Sister match for one year.

A big thank you to all of our generous GrapeJuice sponsors , donors, guests and volunteers!
