Each year, National Volunteer Week takes place in April to thank millions of Canadian volunteers. In celebration of this event, CTN put forward a nomination to the Town of Richmond Hill to recognize Rahila as one of our most outstanding volunteers for her efforts with the CTN FEC, as one of our Family Mentors and as an advocate for inclusion in the community. Rahila has been a champion for families who have children with special needs. As a mentor and FEC member, she has been instrumental in connecting parents in the community to valuable resources and programs for their children with autism. She’s also helped to share information about how to make the community more inclusive for kids of all needs and abilities.
Rahila is an enthusiastic volunteer in her local community and has helped bring many CTN projects to fruition. She has been an engaged and passionate volunteer with CTN for 6 years in the following volunteer roles:
