Community Connections Volunteer Program

Are you interested in volunteering directly with newcomers? Do you want to help newcomers learn to access services and connect with our community? Volunteering with Immigrant Services is a fulfilling way to give back to the community.

Volunteers are matched with newcomers and newcomer families to offer one-on-one support with everything from learning how to go to the bank and the grocery store to offering peer support and guidance around applying to jobs and going to school.

Matching activities have been shown to support the two-way street of integration by fostering intercultural awareness and acceptance, and supporting volunteer to better understand the contributions of immigrants and the challenges they face in Canada.

Conversation Circles

Our Women’s and Men’s Conversation Circles provide an opportunity for newcomers in Canada, to come together on a weekly basis for gender specific support and to chat, to connect with others in similar situations and to alleviate loneliness and isolation while arriving at solutions to apply to everyday living in Canada. Conversation Circles are extremely fluid programs as we have a diverse range of attendees on any given day. The primary purpose of the Conversation Circles are to help facilitate positive cross-cultural experiences and associations.
