Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015
Accent Inn Santa Claus Duck

Merry Christmas

Christmas is a time to be together. To celebrate those we love and remember those who have loved and supported us. As we are 2 days away from Christmas we want to say thanks to all of our wonderful customers that have been there for us this year. This is the time of year we look forward to celebrating with our families and welcoming those who have travelled and are staying while they visit their families.  For those who celebrate Hanukkah or other holidays we wish you the best of the season as well. One thing we believe in at Accent Inns is diversity. We celebrate it with our diverse staff, customers and in support of several community organizations. It’s what makes Canada so wonderful.

Speaking of wonderful, thanks to all the incredible community and not-for-profit groups we have had the privilege to work with this past year. You make it possible for so many to have a Christmas or holiday celebration. You bring families together. You make families whole. You even help create families. You bring us together with pets that offer unconditional love. You teach us about our environment. You find ways to help people get well and support those who are not. You find ways fund research so that others can get better and hold our hands when we have to say goodbye to those we love. Thanks to all of you that have helped wipe our tears, given us hugs and made us smile.

Merry Christmas to all!

Family Support In BC Has A New Name

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Family Support Institute of BC LogoIt’s Official – Family Support in BC has a new name.

October 2, 2015: New Westminster, B.C. – The Family Support Institute Board of Directors, over the last several years, has been contemplating how FSI can be better represented as having a provincial scope. Their official name was the West Coast Family Support Institute Society which implied that they only served families living on the Westcoast of BC, when they actively serve people ALL ACROSS our province. At FSI’s AGM on June 12, 2015, the membership unanimously voted to approve a special resolution to approve a society name change from the “West Coast Family Support Institute Society” to the “Family Support Institute of BC Society” (FSIBC). They feel this name change will help people to see that they are a provincial society in all aspects of their work. (more…)

BC – The Perfect Place for Water Sports

Friday, July 17th, 2015
BC beaches

Enjoy the water this summer in BC

Spring and summer this year has been hot and dry and what that means to me is getting out on, or in the water. This year my wife and I are planning a vacation close to home, which means British Columbia. It got me thinking about what water sports activities we could do around the province, and close to an Accent Inns hotel.

My first thought was Kelowna and Lake Okanagan which has hundreds of beaches and places to swim. It was then that I thought about trying something a little different this year and came up with a few water sports I haven’t tried, or at least not here at home. (more…)

Top Ten Tips For Taking Your Family On A Business Trip

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015
Family in car on road trip

Take your family on your next business trip

When my children were young, my job involved travelling extensively around Europe and North America and I was forever saying to a business colleague or client while in some strange foreign clime, “I wish my wife could see this” or, “My son Joshua, or Adam would have loved to play on that.” Looking back I don’t know why I never thought to take them, but it was probably because they all involved several expensive flights.

Victoria Truck Light Parade – watch it, support it

Friday, December 6th, 2013

IMGP0322bBreaker breaker… looks like we got us a convoy

This Saturday night, December 7th, the annual IEOA (Equipment owners association) truck light parade will head through Victoria BC.  From 5:45 pm to 8:30 pm , main streets, side streets and even back streets will be lit up by some of the most colorful collection of vehicles ever seen. Cement trucks, dump trucks, slingers, crane trucks, fire trucks, buses and more will form into a convoy and pass before thousands of local families and visitors before ending up as an incredibly bright display at Western Speedway.  The truck owners and companies, their staff, family and friends all come together to pay for and create some incredible displays. These trucks take hours and hours of paid and volunteer time to complete. Every hour that one of these trucks is not “working” that’s money they are not earning for their owners. It’s a huge commitment by all the participants and we thank them so much. With the additional help of a few sponsors (Accent Inns is proud to be one), some great local media support and the generosity of our local municipalities and police departments this event finally comes together. But let’s remember why this started many years ago… to raise awareness and support for those in need. For many years now the Truck light parade has raised 10’s of thousands of pounds of food and $$ for Victoria’s local food banks. (more…)
