Enbridge Keeps Holiday Tradition Alive in Amherstburg
Thank you to Enbridge for sponsoring a virtual Christmas party for people receiving supports in Amherstburg!

Each year Enbridge sponsors a party at the Amherstburg Riverlights Gingerbread Warming House. This year, the party went virtual. Pizza was ordered for people supported in the Amherstburg area and everyone joined together to celebrate the holiday season over Zoom!

Additional money that wasn’t used for the virtual Christmas party will be used to purchase technology to help us provide additional virtual supports. Thank you Enbridge & Visit Amherstburg for helping us celebrate the holidays this year.

Special thank you to the River Town Times for sharing this story & photos with us!

Strategic Planning Survey for Employees
The strategic planning process is well underway at Community Living Essex County and we're reaching out to all stakeholders to provide input. We've just re-opened the employee survey and the due date has been extended to provide employees more time to complete it and have their say in the future of supports and services at our organization.  

The survey includes several open-ended questions and takes between 10 and 30 minutes to complete. Feel free to use point form. Answers are confidential and will only be seen by the external strategic planning consultant. Only aggregated themes and summaries will be provided back to our Strategic Planning Steering Committee.

The survey will be open until midnight Friday, January 15, 2021. Click the following link to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XZQ3HZP
