AGM & Annual Report

Thank- you to everyone who attended our AGM on June 26th, 2017. Excellent presentations were given by June Jollymore and Judith Fingard.  The evening ended with musical entertainment by Rita-Jane, Alan, Mike and Joel.

Our challenging year has ended on a resilient note; we have covered our cumulative deficit.  We are grateful to the individuals, organizations and funders who believe in the work of our organization.

We want to welcome our new Board Chair, Erin Flaim, and thank our Past Chair, Hayden Laltoo, for his leadership during difficult times. It is the dedication of amazing volunteers like Erin and Hayden that help us to continue offering our vital social support programs.
