In celebration of FESA’s 25th

anniversary, we launched our Cover

Your FESA fundraising campaign to provide vulnerable Calgarians with access to resources and supports to help them stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All money raised during the campaign period was matched by Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink. Birdies for Kids is a matching program for charities across Alberta that matches donations up to 50%.


In June, FESA held its first online silent auction organized by the Board of Directors. The Board procured a wonderful assortment of items donated by local businesses. A total of $4,445 was raised from the auction.

E-LEARning support

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for e-Learning supports for learners. ‘Online Meeting Basics’ was developed with Going the Distance staff and next year we’ll be working on adding an Indigenous Workplace Learning Circles program to FESA’s e-Learning portal.


We also supported learners where internet access is a barrier to learning. We started a lending library of tablets with Stoney Nakoda Job Resource Centre. The tablets can be borrowed by participants and given away to participants that complete the program.
