OVERVIEW

The GMCA is now welcoming submissions for our 2021 Resume Clinic. Our executive team will review submitted resumes and provide feedback and edits in exchange for a ‘pay-what-you-can’ donation to True North Aid.

Our team is committed to supporting reconciliation efforts that will make Canada a safe, equitable and inclusive space for our Indigenous communities. Your donation to True North Aid supports the organization in providing practical humanitarian assistance to northern Indigenous communities. These initiatives cover resource provision, youth empowerment, and reconciliation education. Together, these efforts aim to empower Indigenous communities and promote awareness and reconciliation in Canada.

To participate in the Resume Clinic, please submit your resume and a “proof-of-donation" by September 1st, 2021, 11:59 PM EDT. Your generosity and support of this cause is greatly appreciated.
