Read Vision and Mission Statements (page 5) 

THE ACSESS VISION ACSESS strives to be the most highly recognized and respected Association for effectively protecting, supporting, and promoting the interests of the Canadian recruitment and staffing industry. We elevate the way members, candidates, and communities value our contributions to business, employment and society.
