Give for Change is the annual Fundraising Campaign aimed to tell stories of our staff members, clients, partners, reveals hidden insights, challenges as well as celebrates the success of newcomers to Canada.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, the community that we support has been disproportionately impacted. Your gift will help us continue our work in serving thousands of immigrants and refugees every year.
We are here for our community, steadfast in our mission to serve immigrants and refugees. We are:
  • Providing online language classes to new immigrants and refugees.
  • Running digital training programs including Entrepreneurship, Trades, Horticulture, Health Informatics, and more.
  • Helping jobseekers impacted due to COVID-19, through our various employment programs.
  • Offering virtual group sessions and confidential one-on-one counseling services.
  • Running an online youth leadership program for newcomer and racialized youth.
  • Virtually connecting internationally-trained professionals to mentors in their field of profession.
  • Lending technology for those who don’t have access to computer and technology resources to take part in online programs.
