Case Worker Representative (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 22 June 2017
A typical day at work was to see clients and assess them based on their current needs. After discussing the clients situation, suitable resources were to be matched to their needs as a result of the disaster that had taken place. On average you would see about three or four clients a day, but I worked with the Indigenous Peoples team. This meant seeing up to eight clients a day six days a week. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was making a positive change in the clients post disaster life.

Driver (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 7 January 2017
We were a team on blood clinics. Everyone knew their job. Equipment was unloaded and set up. People went to work and at the end of the day we loaded the equipment back in the Jumbo truck and the blood into the refrigerator truck and drove back to our home depot in Hamilton. There was a piano in the lounge and we had sing alongs.
It was an excellent experience working with social and community commitments
