5th Annual Toronto Newcomer Day

CultureLink participated in the 5th annual Toronto Newcomer Day held at Nathan Phillips Square and City Hall on May 16.

Toronto Newcomer Day is an annual celebration to officially welcome newcomers to Toronto, celebrate and acknowledge their contributions to the city. The one-day event included a formal stage program, an information fair, a citizenship ceremony, and many other interactive activities.

Many Torontonians came to join welcoming newcomers at this showcase of Toronto’s diverse communities.

Our program staff represented CultureLink at the information fair and promoted agency programs available to newcomers.
