About us

The Catholic Centre for Immigrants has been welcoming newcomers in Ottawa since 1954. We help refugees and immigrants adapt and integrate into Canadian society. We want every newcomer to reach their full potential. We provide programs and services to all newcomers regardless of race, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, mental or physical ability

Immigrants represent almost one quarter of the population of the City of Ottawa.
