The Ghanaian-Canadian Social Services Network has a multi-disciplinary staff that work together as a team on individual projects. The GSSN also has access to subject matter experts who act as advisors and consultants on specific issues or projects. GOVERNANCE The GSSN is governed by a Board of Directors, which provides advice on the directions of the Network and on the development and implementation of the Centre’s work program. The Board has a decision-making role in terms of determining the priority-driven research questions, allocating and reviewing research funding and establishing committees to provide advice on the distribution of funds in respect of particular research questions.
Our vision is to become a strong and sustainable agency that effectively assists and empowers Ghanaian-Canadian individuals and families through service delivery, advocacy, education and awareness campaigns.
Our mission is to provide practical assistance and culturally-sensitive social support services to members of the Ghanaian-Canadian community in Ontario dealing with issues such barriers to integration, family conflict, parent/teen conflict, domestic violence, and children in conflict with the law. The core values of the Ghanaian-Canadian Social Services Network are honesty, trust, integrity, respect, accountability, empathy, and hard work. These values are the guiding principles of the organization. Members will practice these values when doing the work of the organization, including when serving our families, individuals and communities.
