Free Rein Associates Training Ltd. is the 2011 recipient of the BC Career Development Association’s Organization of the Year Award.

Free Rein Associates Training Ltd. is the 2011 recipient of the B.C. Career Development Association’s Organization of the Year Award.

This award for excellence is one of three the industry-wide association presents at its annual provincial conference.

The Hope company was nominated by Gerry Dyble, executive director of the Hope and Area Transition Society.

“We are so encouraged as a team to receive both the nomination and award. Our efforts over these past 18 years have been recognized by our peers and that means a great deal to us,” said Peter Bailey.

Bailey owns and manages the company in partnership with Christine Proulx.

“It is a great honour to receive this award and spurs us on to continue our work in the community,” said Proulx.

“Last year Free Rein was invited to speak to B.C.’s community-based trainers on the model we developed in Hope because it is very close to the model proposed for the province,” said Proulx.

The B.C. government will introduce one-stop employment centres commencing April 2012, added Proulx.
