Starting from scratch in a new country is difficult. Let newcomers know they aren’t alone.

Leaving your entire life behind and starting fresh in a new country is extremely difficult. There are challenges at every corner – navigating a new city, learning a new language, accessing healthcare and education, or simply finding community and a sense of belonging. 

For refugees, returning home is not an option. As they grieve the loss of their country they find themselves isolated with minimal support.

Creating programs for newcomers

Understanding the difficulties newcomers face, charities across the country are providing much-needed resources to help them start their life in Canada. These programs include language classes, employment opportunities, legal support, counselling, health services and much more. 

With your help, newcomers can feel welcomed and continue to receive critical support during a very difficult and transitional time.
