Embrace Syrian Newcomers Initiative

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016


We have identified an urgent need to help settle the 500 Syrian newcomers who are coming to Canada within the next 3 weeks by December 31st, 2016.

Sign up for the MAC & COSTI: Befriend A Newcomer Family program – This is a longer term commitment to be assigned as a ‘host’ with a specific Syrian newcomer family and to help them integrate into the society. This is a very rewarding position with a support network established to help the host.  If you agree to be a host you will:
a) Undergo a Vulnerable Sector Screening check.
b) Sign up for 2 hour training session. Those who sign up to be a host will get a separate email with training materials.
c) Be generally available at least 2 weekdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to help the refugees in the first week.
d) Speak Arabic or have someone in your family or circle of friends who speaks Arabic and is willing to help.
