ACCES Recognizes Alumni Champions – 2018 Walk of Fame Awards 

ACCES’s 2018 Walk of Fame Awards recognizes the amazing contributions of our Alumni champions.  Our champions represent 9 different programs at ACCES Employment and have generously contributed their time, expertise and experience to support other newcomers to succeed in Canada.  Each of the winners have contributed in their own ways through mentoring, guest speaking, recruiting other ACCES candidates and sharing about ACCES with their employer.  Each of them are “paying it forward” and recognizes the importance of giving back to the newcomer community to ensure success for future immigrants.  Congratulations to all of the winners – you have made a world of difference!
