The success of Fraserside would not be possible without the help of a highly dedicated and talented staff team.

"You Make the Difference" is a Fraserside staff recognition program where staff members are recognized for any special efforts, actions or achievements they have done that has made a positive difference to a client, co-worker or Fraserside as a whole.


Any Fraserside staff member (full time, part-time, casual, union and non-union) of Fraserside is eligible to receive “You Make the Difference" recognition.

Staff may be nominated by any member of the Fraserside community (management, staff, client, board member, parent/family member, volunteer or member of the general public).
