Adult Programs

Learn new skills and information, and build social connections.

Programs are helpful resources for adults who have recently arrived in Canada. Through instruction, mentorship, and training, programs can help newcomers gain the knowledge and tools to successfully live and find belonging in Canadian society. Every one of us, regardless of background, has the right to be seen, heard, welcomed and included in our communities. Connect with the community through a program today.
