Message from Premier of Ontario Dalton McGuinty

October 28, 2008


On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone attending the 30th anniversary gala of Working Skills Centre (WSC).

Ontario’s strength lies in its ability to embrace every culture to create an inclusive, dynamic and prosperous society. For three decades, the dedicated staff and volunteers of WSC have worked hard to fulfil the centre’s mission of providing immigrant women with the training and business skills to become self-sufficient. By giving new Ontarians the tools they need to succeed in our society, WSC is helping to ensure the continued prosperity of our province.

I commend everyone involved with WSC for the vital role you play in helping citizens make a smooth transition to Canadian society. You are not only enhancing their lives, but the social and economic life of our society — and making Ontario an even better place to live.

As you celebrate this special occasion, please accept my best wishes for a memorable gala and much ongoing success.

Dalton McGuinty
