/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - ACCES Employment Celebrates Newcomers
Achieving their Canadian Dreams/

BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - ACCES Employment will host its third annual Walk of Fame Event to celebrate the success of 7 inductees to the 2009 ACCES Employment Walk of Fame. Their recent success in finding employment was achieved by them staying positive, focused and persistent. Each recipient also took advantage of the free services provided by ACCES Employment giving them a competitive advantage and the right connections.

The Walk of Fame recipients are a portrait of Toronto's diversity, each individual has a unique story and one that is an inspiration to others who are new to Canada. Maria Brett who is now working as a Senior IT Analyst with Johnson and Johnson said, "When you are an immigrant, you fear that everything is going to be difficult. My ACCES consultant was the first person who said to me 'you can do it'." Other recipients are now working at RBC, TD, Harris Consulting, HBC, Profile Entertainment and Frontline Technologies in roles such as: Director of Social Media, Production Manager, Senior Business Analyst, Manufacturing Engineer and General Accountant.

This year's inductees will be personally congratulated by Khalil Ramal, MPP, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration representing the Honorable Michael Chan, the Mayor of Brampton Susan Fennell and representatives from ACCES' corporate sponsors Scotiabank, Tim Hortons, RBC, TD and CIBC. The event will be hosted by Angie Seth, Lead News Anchor, OMNI News South Asian Edition and over 100 guests will enjoy entertainment by pianist Robert Chambers.
