Leger honoured for food bank work

Mission accountant bestowed Harold Clarke Award for Service

Mission’s Ron Leger has received the Harold Clarke Award for Service from the the Certified General Accountants Association of British Columbia (CGABC) for his work leading a team to raise money for the new St. Joseph’s Food Bank.

“I enjoy helping out the community and I like how that donations to the food bank goes straight to feeding those who need help,” Leger said.

Each month, the food bank distributes about $50,000 worth of food, and last year, provided food to more than 6,000 people. Leger has worked with the food bank for 17 of the 21 years it has existed, and was appointed by the Archbishop of Vancouver as his agent responsible for construction at the food bank.

Leger also contributes to his community by serving local businesses and residents. He is the owner of, and accountant at, R.J. Leger CGA Ltd. For over 23 years, his business has provided accounting services to Mission’s citizens and entrepreneurs. Prior to becoming a CGA, Leger studied finance and accounting at New Brunswick’s Université de Moncton and obtained a bachelor of commerce in accounting and finance from Nova Scotia’s Saint Mary’s University.
