Mission & history
What We Do
We help newcomers find housing and jobs, learn a new language, enroll their children in school, and connect to a faith community.
We also help them with everyday tasks most people take for granted, such as opening a bank account, using public transit, shopping, or finding a family doctor.
We help children, youth, adults, and seniors integrate and adjust to Canadian culture while respecting and encouraging the benefits of a diverse society. We connect Canadians with newcomers so that together we build a more welcoming community for everyone.
Ottawa is home now. Let’s help them reach their full potential.
