Aubrey was a volunteer mentor with CCMP’s mentorship program and helped established the Citizenship circle at Burrows Hall library that started in 2012. He volunteered non-stop for over three years and was travelling every week (rain or shine), from North York to Scarborough to help the newcomers with citizenship education. He was the first to develop and introduce the citizenship quizzes and came up with the tips and techniques that still help newcomers prepare for the exam. His approach and guidance has resulted in many newcomers passing the exam and coming back to thank him for all the support. He had remarkable wealth of knowledge and he never hesitated to share that with the newcomer participants. He helped newcomers understand the true value of Canadian citizenship and always encouraged them to achieve their full potential in Canadian society.
It was wonderful experience working and learning from him. He will be missed immensely by many for all his guidance and dedication.
Aubrey’s family has set-up an online memorial book. To pay tribute to Aubrey visit http://www.legacy.com/guestbooks/thestar/aubrey-ramprasad-.condolences/180928963?&eid=sp_gbapprove .
