New director welcomed
The Coopérative d’intégration francophone (CIF) welcomed a new co-ordinator of settlement services for Francophone permanent residents on P.E.I.
Dupe Akinniyi began working with CIF in November at the organization’s office in Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean.
Originally from Belgium, Akinniyi has been living in the Charlottetown area with her family for over a year. In the course of her career, she spent 10 years working in car manufacturer Toyota’s marketing department.
Then, after obtaining a Montessori Education certificate, she founded her own daycare centre in Brussels, which she managed until her move to Canada. Drawing on her professional experience and her own journey immigrating to P.E.I., Akinniyi is excited to use her skills to help newcomers to the Island.
She can be reached by telephone at 902-370-7333 ext. 405 or by email at co[email protected]
