  • 7,107 newcomers got the help and services they needed from our Settlement Program teams
  • 248 families found places to live, helped by our housing teams.
  • 134 children used programs and services from our Children’s Program.
  • 925+ adults and young people connected to the community through field trips, activities, and workshops through our Community and Employment Connections programs.
  • 54 volunteers and families were paired up through our Matching Program, reaching 161 newcomers.
  • 69 refugees were brought to safety by sponsoring groups who worked closely with our Sponsorship support teams.


When you make a donation today, you are helping to deliver programs that help newcomers settle and adjust to life in your community.


You can honour a loved one or make a memorial gift that will impact the life of a newcomer today. A tribute or memorial gift is a meaningful gesture that will have an immediate impact.
