Private Sector Executive Vice-President

“As DSPs and paraprofessionals, we help the individuals we serve to be included in the community by assisting them with their daily living, vocational and coping skills. When we are united, we are powerful! There is no obstacle that we can’t overcome. We can right wrongs, help workers to have a voice in their workplaces, and bring people up and out of poverty through unity, education and negotiations.”
