Annual General Meeting 2015We thank all those – nearly 100 – who attended our Annual General Meeting and first ever Donor Appreciation Reception on June 24, 2015. It was our pleasure to both provide awareness and show gratitude in one event.

We had a lot of fun chatting with those who came from nearby and outside the city, offering guests light fare prepared proudly by our Men’s Mission kitchen. It was wonderful food made with a lot of heart. In addition, we presented our 2014-2015 Annual Report as shown in the photo. Thank you to Jim Anderson Flowers Ltd. for making the tables look beautiful.

Be sure to watch our 30 second video on Quintin Warner House, addiction treatment branch, that introduced our featured presentation. We were honoured to have Jon DeActis, Director, take us through the history of the program, celebrating 50 years of changing lives in London. The highlight was hearing from two graduates who inspired listeners with their strength and courage to be free from their addiction. Proceeds from our 2015 Fall Banquet will support this branch.



A memo is attached regarding Accreditation. Please take the time to read the memo and the terms of reference attached to the memo.

To help ensure that employers understand their obligations and that employees know their rights, the Minister of Labour has prepared and published an Employment Standards Poster entitled “Employment Standards in Ontario”.

This poster describes important rights and requirements under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and must be posted in the workplace where it is likely that employees will see it.  Employers are also required to give every employee a copy of the poster by June 19, 2015. Any employees hired after May 20th, 2015, will be given a copy of the poster during their Head Office/Health & Safety Orientation.
