2019 Innovation Award - Greater Toronto

Outreach and Program Assistant

College-Montrose Children’s Place

Nominator Comments:

Ashleigh began at College-Montrose Children’s Place as a Registered Early Childhood Education volunteer. Now as a staff member, Ashleigh’s dedication to supporting families continues at the forefront of her work.

She initiated the Nurturing Development Program to provide assistance for families who need extra support or have special needs, and co-chairs the Inclusion Resource Network. Ashleigh is fondly referred to as the Queen of Cardboard for her ability to make items for the children to use as a part of their program.

Wheelchair dependent, Ashleigh remains committed to her colleagues and clients, even if circumstances beyond her control impact her programming. She has used her personal connections with individuals and organizations to network and spread the word about this program and raised its profile in the community.
