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 employees are recognized for any special efforts, actions or achievements that make a positive difference to a person we serve, a co-worker or Fraserside as a whole.


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

Employees may be nominated by any member of the Fraserside community (management, employees, persons served, board members, parents or family members, volunteers or members of the public).

There is a limit of one nominee per form but no limit to the number of forms a nominator may submit. 

Nomination Process

The Nomination Form can be downloaded here. Alternatively, hard copies can be obtained from Fraserside program sites.

Completed nomination forms are to be given to Jason Hamdan, Human Resources Assistant via:

  • Mail to 330 – 550 Sixth Street, New Westminster, BC V3L 3B7 or
  • Fax to 604-522-1116 or

  • Nomination envelope at a Fraserside program site which will be collected by a supervisor.

Recognition Process

Jason Hamdan will prepare a "You Make the Difference" certificate and forward it for signature to Lynda Edmonds, Chief Executive Officer. The certificate will be passed to the supervisor of the recognized employee for presentation along with a small gift. Names of employees who have received certificates throughout the year will be announced: at the Fraserside Annual General Meeting (AGM) in September; via email to all employees; and under the “Employee Recognition” section of the Fraserside Employee Website.
