CANES Community Care

Nominator Comments:

As CEO for CANES Community Care, Gordon Gunning is in a position where part of his role is to empower others and delegate that fosters responsibility. However, he does in it such a way where he has much respect from all of his colleagues and personnel. He is very encouraging to all of his staff and colleagues — this goes from frontline workers to Board members. He takes time to know his staff and ensures their hard work is recognized. He has also lead the agency in successfully attaining accreditation standards, ushered in a new way of doing business and partnering by securing a joint venture agreement with two other organizations. This enhanced service delivery of care services and capacity to seniors in an every expanding market place within the Greater Toronto Region. These are just some of Gordon’s recent accomplishments.
