Refugee Awareness Campaign
June 20th is observed as “World Refugee Day” to honor the strength, courage, and resilience of millions of refugees. The Centre for Newcomers has a proud 27-year history of welcoming and supporting immigrants and refugees from all corners of the world, providing programs, training, and resources to support their settlement and integration within our great city. Each year, the Centre supports over 10,000 newcomers to settle and integrate and begin their lives as prosperous and hardworking new citizens in Canada.
Show your support of refugees by wearing an orange ribbon through the month of June. Available for purchase by donation at various businesses and organizations across the city, proceeds from the orange ribbons will support the Centre for Newcomers’ programs and community services.
