Community Connections program provides free activities and workshops to help newcomers build social connections, gain life skills, improve physical well-being, access local resources, and raise awareness of Canadian heritage, culture and life in Canada.
We run a variety of field trips, tours, social activities, outdoor adventures, sports, art workshops, and fun activities every month.
Through the program, newcomers also have the opportunity to practice their English language skills with the Chinese English learning group and Language Exchanges. We also offer French 101 and Citizenship 101 study every year.
