We are thankful for 30 years assisting newcomers in their transition to a new country
We stand by new Canadians starting their new life in Canada. F rom the first day of school to the first job, and everything in between, ev ery first experience brings a challenge and leaves us with a special memory . The collaboration of dozens of volunteers allows us to make a significant impact during these exciting times.

Do You Know How It Feels?

Even practicing simple tasks such as using your school cabinet “lock” can be a challenge for a newcomer student. By the end of NOW program they have more confidence, and are able to advocate on own their behalf.

Staff Lunch Rides

Throughout the summer, guided by one of our own cycling instructors, a group of us hits the streets on personal and borrowed bikes (thanks MEC!). Its a great way to inspire active transportation and bond as a team!
