Become a Friend of Newcomers

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 volunteers to better understand the contributions of immigrants and the challenges they face in Canada.
