“This is an extremely proud and important day for the Society”, said CAS of Toronto Board Chair Anthony Fralick. “From a governance perspective, we have worked hard for years to develop the frameworks and policies that would actively foster an environment of inclusion, diversity and anti-oppression. Having that work acknowledged on a national level is very gratifying.”
