We thank our clients, our funders, sponsors and partners, the staff and volunteers who continue to trust and support the Centre for Newcomers’ vision of a diverse and integrated community in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfill their dreams and participate fully as citizens.
Services are still oversubscribed, reflecting the continuing increase in the flow of newcomers to Calgary and to our Centre. While supporting new immigrants to participate in the various aspects of Canadian society, we continue to engage with government, businesses and the community-at-large to develop more inclusive processes that better support integration.
The Centre will continue to offer a strong suite of core services – in a settlement, employment, and English language learning; at the same time, we are anticipating significant change. We are on the threshold of a new era, a new direction focused on intense support to newcomers, whilst increasing our outreach to receiving community. Our future will see an increased focus on building and sustaining external relationships through improved and wider stakeholder participation, to ensure that integration is understood and embraced by everyone.
