PRESS RELEASE: AAISA launches Information Hub Website for Refugees in Alberta

Website helps refugees access information in multiple languages that can help them settle and thrive in Alberta.
 
Calgary, Alberta, Canada - September 7, 2016: The Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (AAISA) announces the launch of a new website, www.refugeealberta.ca, which will serve as a one-stop shop for refugees to access information on settling in Alberta and services to support them in their new life.
 
Following one of the largest resettlements of refugees in Canadian history, the website, which is funded by the Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, responds to a significant need across the province. Since November 2015, Canada resettled 25,000 Syrian refugees across the country--3,792 of which were welcomed by Albertans. Another wave of Syrian refugees integrate into their new lives by providing support with language, employment and social well-being. Over 1,400 of these services can be found on the website's settlement service database.
 
Refugees like Sleman Aldib, an electrical engineer, theatre actor, and photographer who came to Calgary from Syria with his family eight months ago, can search for services in their area and find information on important every day topics like where to find a family doctor, what their rights are as a tenant, how to find a job, how the education system works and what to wear in the winter. Aldib, a privately sponsored refugee who provided input on the website, says that "all information you need is in the same place." The website can also help sponsors like Mayssoun Hneidi, who together with her husband, brought Aldib and his family to Canada. Hneidi believes the website will empower refugees because it "...tells them about Alberta. People are always eager to know about the place they move to and now call home."
 
About AAISA
AAISA is a regionally and nationally recognized leader, representative, hub, and an amplifier of the settlement and integration sector in Alberta. As an umbrella organization of immigrant serving organizations, AAISA's mandate is to build sectorial capacity through professional development, research, and stakeholder engagement. AAISA's member agencies provide services to assist newcomers in becoming fully integrated members of society. For more information, visit AAISA's website at www.aaisa.ca.

CALGARY, March 7, 2016 – Accomplished Canadian musician and actor Tom Jackson brings his philanthropic prowess into his latest role as Ambassador for employment firm and social enterprise WeEmploy Inc.

The appointment reflects WeEmploy’s efforts to create more value for its members, providing enhanced networking and business opportunities in addition to expert employment services.

“We live in an extraordinary time of stress for many and it will take extraordinary commitment for us to work through it together,” said Tom, who is a strong advocate of social responsibility.

“I believe in the values that build the foundation of WeEmploy. It’s important for the business world to engage in what’s equally good for business, good for the world, and good for the soul.”

As an Ambassador, Tom lends his weight of influence, experience, and profile to WeEmploy’s network of non-profit organizations, job seekers, corporate subscribers, and investors.

In conjunction with partner company Friday Professional Group, WeEmploy will be hosting investinWE: Community Engagement Sessions. These will be focused on information exchange, networking, and exploring the possibilities for growth and advancement among attendees.

WeEmploy will also have a dedicated community page for Tom and the monthly investinWE sessions. The events will be exclusive to WeEmploy members, with topics tailored to the interests of its attendees. The company is preparing for the first session, slated for the coming weeks. An announcement of the schedule is being finalized. Companies interested in joinining should sign up at WeEmploy.com or call 403-2330505.

“We are proud to welcome Tom to the WeEmploy family and we are excited with the world of possibilities that we are bringing to our community,” said Steve Mix, CEO & CoFounder, WeEmploy Inc.

“In line with our goal of providing the best in employment services, the engagement sessions are added benefits for our members. We are cultivating the connections between business growth and sustained employment, as well as its positive impact on the larger community.”

Tom has dedicated his prolific career to helping the less fortunate across Canada. From producing TV specials and benefit concerts to purchasing and selling beef for drought-stricken farmers, he has raised millions of dollars for various social causes, including poverty reduction and disaster relief.

“Twenty eight years ago, I lived in a crawl space, far below any poverty line. The creator sent me an angel, a man who was worse off than me. When I decided to help that man, I went from ‘Woe is me’ to ‘Whoa, it’s me!’,” said Tom.

“Over the past 28 years, I have been fortunate in that I am able to help the less fortunate. My team has generated over $250 million in cash and in-kind value for Canadians in need. As I continue down that path, let me say it is an honor for me to hold the title of Ambassador of this organization.”

A national icon, Tom has received nine honorary university degrees and numerous accolades from prestigious institutions such as the JUNOs, Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. He has also been appointed as an Officer of the Order of Canada for his music and humanitarian work and in 2014 was presented with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement. ❖
