Today, October 26, 2017, marks the 90th Anniversary of the BC Corps of Commissionaires!
Our division began when only three men by the names of Percy Lawrence, A. Farthing, and C.B Strickland, approached LCol. A. Leslie Coote, CD, a pre-war officer, for guidance and support in forming a unit of Commissionaires. Originally, we were incorporated with only a handful of personnel. Today, we have expanded to over 1,200 men and women from all walks of life who have all contributed greatly to the successes of our organization.
CEO Chris Mitchell says, “on the occasion of the 90th Anniversary for Commissionaires BC, I appreciate our valuable workforce that supports our social mandate of creating meaningful employment for all those who serve and have served our community and country. I consider it an immense privilege to lead the delivery on this mandate. Thank you for your diligence, hard work, and passion as you provide exceptional service to our clients and the community.”
Today we celebrate the many achievements of BC division, and those who made it possible. Happy Birthday Commissionaires BC, and congratulations on 90 years of innovation, diversity and success!
