CISS welcomes Ginette Bédard to the team as the new Intake Coordinator!

How long have you worked for CISS/AFCS?
I have been working for AFCS for over 28 years. I first started working at Child Care Information as an Information Counselor and then as the Team Leader of Family Support Services which included our Short Term Child Care Program. Between 1993 to 1994, I was provided with an opportunity to work one day a week at CISS as the Francophone Training Coordinator. During my Manager’s maternity leave, I was tasked with some of her responsibilities therefore I returned to working full time at CCI. I had fond memories of working in this program, it was a great learning experience that I fully enjoyed and highly valued. Now I am returning, fully devoted and committed to contributing to the CISS program that specializes in the inclusion of children with special needs.

What’s your favourite part of the job?
I get satisfaction from helping, brainstorming with others, researching and providing information, referrals & resources to assist in making informed decisions.

What is your hobby?
I enjoy participating in physical activities such as walking, hiking and going to the gym. I also love travelling to villages to see their specialty shops.

What is your dream destination for a trip?
Travelling to Europe and visiting as many countries as possible is my ultimate dream.

Do you have a pet?
Deeks is our family dog, he is a 7 year old cairn terrier who loves meeting other dogs on our walks.
