Be the Change you Want to See
After a long time working and studying from home, we can finally plan small outdoor gatherings, send the kids to summer camp, go for a bite at a newly installed patio and even think about where we will go once we're allowed to travel without restrictions! Let's be happy about that. Let's also remember that whatever our language, culture, nationality, skin colour, beliefs or abilities; we were all under the threat of the same virus, affected by months-long quarantine and we are all looking forward to living life as normal, safe and fair as possible. Let's work together towards an inclusive and welcoming society, proud of its diversity, respectful and protective of all its members. May we inspire others to open their hearts and minds to the differences that make each of us unique. And let us hope for change where change is needed, so there is no more place for hate and discrimination in our community.
Happy Bike Month!

There are a few days left to celebrate Bike Month with activities all around the city. And to continue learning about bikes and enjoying cycling throughout the summer and beyond, two of our programs are here to help: the Bike Hub at 15 Tobermory Drive and the Mississauga Cycles Project.
Clients on the Pathway

The announced Pathways to Permanent Residency for Healthcare and Essential workers are a great way to recognize all frontline workers’ contributions to Canada during COVID-19. However, the requirements contain barriers and potential risks to our clients.
Connecting Volunteers

You'd be surprised to discover that 'simple' tasks such as opening a bank account, registering kids to school or making a doctor's appointment, can be so difficult and overwhelming for Newcomers. That is why programs like Canada Connects exist. Here's a volunteer's testimonial.
Lead by Example

For some newcomer clients, there is a lot of confusion and concern regarding vaccines. Our settlement workers deliver information and answer questions in their language. One went as far as joining the “This Is Our Shot” campaign, to encourage her community to get vaccinated.
Summer Settlement Program

CultureLink's Summer Settlement Program (SSP) provides settlement services while responding to diverse settlement needs. Our settlement workers give clients information about the local community. They are also offering a number of workshops during the month of July. Click the button below to register.
