The Society of Hope recently received a Provincial CFLS (Canadian Forces Liaison Council) Employer Supports Award. This award is presented every two years, and every Canadian employer is eligible. The award gives Reservists an opportunity to thank and recognise their employers. As it says in their 'Pacific Connector' Newsletter, "The rewards are intended to recognise the generosity of employers and educators who give the reservists the support and time required for military training and/or deployment."
It was announced on Feb 6, 2019 that the Society of Hope won the "Best Practices in Employer Support – Small Organization" award. The Headquarters of the 39th Canadian Brigade Group is the location where the official awards ceremony will be held on February 26th. We are honored to sit as winners among so many larger and well known Employers in BC, such as Correctional Services Canada, Costco, and CP Rail.
