Canada Connects Program

Having a sense of belonging is a common experience. A sense of belonging is a human need, just like the need for food and shelter.

Feeling that you belong is most important in seeing value in life, in attaching yourself to a place or a person and also in coping with stress. When newcomers come to Canada, they often feel isolated as their extended family members and close circle of friends are not around anymore to support them in their “new” home.

To increase their sense of belonging to Canada, our Canada Connects program addresses their feelings of isolation by matching newcomers with experienced Canadian Volunteer Mentors, who will help them to navigate the Canadian Culture, practice English, learn new skills, build their confidence and build their social network.

We are currently registering newcomers for our Canada Connects program and planning to conduct the orientation and match meeting on April 22, 2021

For more information and registration contact Hashem Rahin at 437- 288-4915 or e-mail
