TD and ACCES Collaborate to Create Success
August 5, 2020
Innovative and committed partners help ACCES create momentum and success in the lives of newcomers. Through generous support, contributions to programs and services, volunteering and mentoring, and the recruitment of newcomer talent, ACCES and TD have contributed to the success of thousands of newcomers as they start their lives in Canada.
By working together, ACCES and TD are making a difference in the lives of newcomer jobseekers in a variety of innovative and targeted ways. With TD’s support, ACCES has been able to address greater income stability for newcomers through future-skills development, much-needed STEM training for underrepresented groups, reducing and removing the barriers facing women jobseekers and helping to curb unemployment and underemployment among internationally trained professionals new to Canada. Specifically, TD’s recent support and sponsorship has enhanced ACCES’s Women in Technology, Empowering Women, Cybersecurity Connections and Talk English Café programming. The collaboration also created an innovative workshop series introducing refugees to TD’s own control functions and compliancy training.
