CANS first in-person Member Mixer in over two years was a great success! Thank you to all who joined us in Truro on April 6. With roughly 40 industry professionals in attendance, the morning was a great chance to network with new partners and reconnect with CANS staff!

Our attendees kicked off their morning with breakfast, followed by an education session on employee engagement presented by Barefoot Facilitation Inc, which was described as “thought-provoking” and “valuable.”

The mixer also included an information session on Building Futures for Youth program and its opportunities this summer for employers, as well as a Strategic Plan update from CANS President & CEO Duncan Williams.

We host casual receptions ensuring our members have the opportunity to engage with each other face to face, continue to maintain existing relationships and also make new business connections.
