Since the day I arrived in Canada, I have been an active volunteer for many community-based organizations. Canadians are passionate champions in giving back to society through volunteer work. This gave me inspiration, and now I don’t think I can feel meaning in my life without getting involved in some kind of philanthropic effort.

While I knew I wanted to be on a board in Hamilton, I didn’t have much knowledge of boards or how they worked. The educational aspect of the program really appealed to me, and so I decided to get involved.

onBoard Canada allowed the Agency to identify its requirements, and provided a ranking of individuals suitable for the roles for which we were recruiting. Through onBoard Canada, Hope 24/7 was able to access talent it would not have otherwise reached.

I set myself a target of sitting on the boards of two organizations. And after about a year, here I am being appointed to boards of two wonderful organizations that proved to be leaders in their fields.
