May 8 – 14 is National Nursing Week. The theme for 2023 is Our Nurses. Our Future.

April 26 is Administrative Professionals Day and we are so excited to celebrate the hard working Administrative Professionals in all of our workplaces! Administrative Professionals include Medical Office Assistants, Receptionists, Secretaries, Office Assistants, Office Administration Assistants, Office Managers, Finance Officers, Clinic Assistants and more! They are often among the few people who know the entire workings of an organization, as they are responsible for the administration and operations of every department and role.
International Worker's Day, sometimes called May Day or Labour Day, takes place annually on May 1. This day is a celebration of labourers and the working class and commemorates the historic and ongoing struggles of the labour movement. In the late 1800's, workers came together to fight for safer work environments and an eight-hour workday, demanding eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, and eight hours to do as they will. These workers struggled and fought, eventually taking to the streets in a general strike that would result in death and injury to those who participated.
