Today (May 19) is Personal Support Worker Day!

This day has been declared as it is an opportunity to recognize the valuable work of Personal Support Workers (PSWs) in Ontario.   At PACE, approximately 80% of our employees have a PSW qualification. 

“We thank all of our front-line staff who hold the PSW qualification in their respective roles for the essential work that they do every day!” said Joanne Wilson, Executive Director.  “It is your efforts, along with those of the other staff, that enable PACE to be recognized as a leader in supporting people with disabilities to live independently through the delivery of high quality innovative services.”
