Jack.org is Canada’s only charity training and empowering young leaders to revolutionize mental health.
 
Through Jack TalksJack Chapters, and Jack Summits, young leaders identify and dismantle barriers to positive mental health in their communities. Jack.org is working towards a Canada where all young people understand how to take care of their own mental health and look out for each other. Jack.org needed a new website that would support their mission of creating a Canada without shame, where all those who need support get the help they deserve. The challenge was creating a website that would inspire Canada’s youth to join the movement while connecting those seeking help with the proper resources.  
 
The A.K.A. team helped Jack.org reposition and ignite their evolving brand through designing and developing Jack.org a website that would support their communication strategy through a visually driven and engaging design strategy, supported by real and authentic storytelling.  Of paramount importance was adopting a best-in-class content management system that empowers Jack.org to effectively manage their online presence internally while ensuring it supports efficient website maintenance and allows for scalability where needed.  
 
Check out the new Jack.org website and make a donation that will support 2,500 young leaders working across Canada to dismantle barriers to positive mental health. Jack.org has many giving options and they work to make it as simple and rewarding as possible. Give today and help fuel the movement.

We recently launched a new website for our client Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC). CFCC helps build health, belonging and social justice in low-income communities across Canada through the power of food.

CFCC needed a new website would help achieve their vision of Canada where food is treated as a basic right and central to health, and where everyone has the means, knowledge and voice necessary to access good food with dignity. As CFCC believes that collaboration leads to bigger impact, a primary goal was to transform the CFCC website into an active online communication vehicle that would work as a central knowledge exchange hub for the broader food security sector, all while empowering CFCC staff to manage their online presence efficiently and effectively through best-in-class tools.

The new website has been a success and Kentico has named it one of June’s Top 10 Websites of the Month!

It has been a pleasure working with the amazing CFCC team and A.K.A. looks foward to maintaining a long term relationship with the innovative organization. CFCC's Director of Communication, Christina Palassio shared this about working with A.K.A.:

"Working with A.K.A. has been terrific. The team brought their thoughtfulness and expertise to our project, listened to our needs and challenges, and worked with us to figure out how to meet them. Trying to satisfy the needs of multiple stakeholders can be a daunting task and having the team at A.K.A. on our side was a huge help. We knew that whatever came up, they'd help us figure it out. We've never looked as good on the web as we do today.”

Check out the CFCC website here and make a donation that will have a real impact on the lives of low-income Canadians.

This June, 1,000 people will gather for a magical night under the stars at The New Farm in Creemore to eat great food, hear Broken Social Scene blow the doors off the barn, and raise money for programs in low-income neighbourhoods that increase access to healthy food.

For the past nine years, the concert at The New Farm has been bringing bands, chefs, and food-lovers together in support of low-income communities. The event has raised more than $750,000 to support Community Food Centres to buy high-quality produce from small-scale local, organic farms.

When users are online, they often share sensitive data with a companies’ websites, such as their name, address, passwords or credit card information.  But how do they know if it is safe for them to share their personal information with a website? How can someone be sure that a website is a safe place where no one will hack or steal their personal information? SSL Certification is the safest way to give more security to your website visitors.

Hope Air is a not-for-profit that works to provide those in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home. In Canada, healthcare coverage starts at the door of the doctor’s office. How you get to the doctor and any related travel costs fall to you. Hope Air is the only national charity providing free flights to low-income families who must travel to specialist medical care that does not exist in their communities. Hope Air believes that where you live in Canada and how much money you make should not determine your ability to access our healthcare system. A free flight lets families focus on what is truly important – their health.
 
Goals of the new Hope Air website included creating a website that was visually and structurally appealing to Hope Air’s audience, which would serve as a major component of their overall communication strategy. It was important to create a compelling first impression to visitors by showcasing a fresh, modern look to engage stakeholders while connecting the right user to the right content to drive them to take action.  Clearly conveying the impact that Hope Air has on people’s lives in an authentic and compelling manner was a priority.
 

“Hope Air is very pleased with the outcome of our new website. A.K.A. was able to incorporate the unique features we required with novel solutions."

Doug Keller-Hobson,
CEO
