Lacing up for Lasting Change-Bowling for Big Brothers Big sisters of Halton

All it takes is one person to make a difference. For children and youth facing poverty, family violence, or issues with mental health, that one person can give them something that can make a significant, life-long impact: hope. And that is exactly what Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton and Hamilton strives to accomplish—to develop and fortify healthy relationships through individual and group mentorship programs that provide support, guidance, and opportunities for children and youth in need. To help the growth of their programs and continue to serve more youth and make real, positive changes in their lives, Tim Hortons hosted its 3rd annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake at Champs Family Entertainment Centre on April 5th.

March for Equality

On the morning of March 9, Milton Town Hall was bustling with excitement and enthusiasm from local residents, faculty and students representing Milton high schools, town councilors, and members from various local businesses and non-profit organization— all getting ready for the 3rd annual “March on Main,” hosted by CFUW Milton and District, in celebration of International Women’s Day. Powerful messages were written across an array of signs, such as “Equal Work Equal Pay”, “Press for Progress”, and this year’s theme, “#BalanceforBetter.” According to The World Economic Forum’s 2018 Global Gender Gap Report, the gender gap is widening and achieving gender parity globally will take 202 years. Of the 149 countries assessed, Canada ranks #16 in total, but only 50th in terms of equal pay for similar work.
