Helping Newcomers to Build A Life
Each year our region receives hundreds of immigrants from nations all over the world. Our mission is to help them assimilate into Canadian culture and enrich all of our lives as we strive to be a multicultural society. Your donation can make a pronounced difference in a newly arrived family’s lives.
Canada has a proud tradition of helping refugees that are fleeing violence, disaster and religious or political persecution. The lives of refugees are hugely disrupted, and we do everything we can to help make the transition to our region as smooth as possible.
