Visit Shawn Bent’s website, Executive Council member representing part-time members

My name is Shawn Bent and I am a self-discovery author, speaker and a Creative Change Artist. I am the author of 2 books: “Make Your Imagination Rich” and “Change For a Quarter”. I deeply enjoy working with people in their twenties (and thirties) and I believe there is a lot more to them than what meets the eye…a lot more than what “society” tells us. I firmly believe that people have the resources within to find out what it is that they really want out of life. I am passionate about what I do and I am adamant toward empowering others to their true potential. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

With compassion and care, Champlain CCAC staff connect those in need to a brighter future

As the steadily rising population of Ottawa ages, the residents who fall into the expanding senior citizen demographic are being confronted with many difficult realities inherent with growing old. Many want to keep their independence by staying in their own homes, but need assistance with daily tasks in order to do so; others lack the mobility to make it to stores and appointments; others have medical needs that aren’t being met due to a lack of a physician or physiotherapist.

With CUPE 503 help, Champlain CCAC becomes first in province to engage in Healthy Conversations

When your role in the community is to interact with citizens in need and connect them with the support services that will give them the proper care to lead a more fulfilling life, effective communication skills are essential. Which is why CUPE 503 recently endorsed an innovation grant proposal submitted by the Champlain Community Care Access Centre to support its health care workers in the field who frequently have to engage in difficult conversations with clients.

April 8, 2009 began as a routine day for Jim Clark, a heavy equipment operator at the City of Ottawa’s Scrivens Road Works Garage. That day would surely have ended in tragedy had it not been for the quick-thinking actions of his well-trained co-workers, Craig McCooeye and Bruce Crate.
