2016 Speed Mentoring Marathon – A Virtual Success!
ACCES Employment hosted our 5th annual Speed Mentoring Marathon, welcoming 400+ mentors and mentees to an evening of networking, mentoring and new connections. The evening featured 11 different mentoring rooms and was our largest ever event. 
This year, ACCES was excited to introduce a new virtual mentoring room to connect newcomers from overseas (still in their home country) with local mentors at the event.  This year’s virtual mentoring session gave pre-arrival mentees overseas the chance to meet with Canadian employers before they immigrate – this will give them an amazing head-start when they arrive in Canada in the months to come.

2016 World of Difference Campaign
To date over 26 000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Canada, with an additional 35 000 expected before the end of the year. There is a significant need to coordinate support efforts, services and programs available to assist Syrian refugees as they arrive in Canada.
Thanks to the success of our 2016 World of Difference Fundraising Campaign, ACCES Employment is delivering employment services and programs that will enable Syrian refugees to become independent and integral members of the community in Toronto. With the leadership and generosity of our lead campaign sponsor, Tangerine, we successfully raised over $43 000 in support of this cause. Thank you to all donors who generously contributed to make a World of Difference this year.
