The New Canadians Centre Peterborough strives to empower immigrants and refugees to become full and equal members of Canadian society, and to provide community leadership to ensure cultural integration in a welcoming community.
“When I first came to Canada I didn’t know anyone.
I felt alone and lost. Then I met Caitlin at the New Canadians Centre. She encouraged me to come to the NCC for classes and workshops. I made friends. My English improved and I gained confidence. With Caitlin’s help, my world changed.
Now, I am a volunteer at the New Canadians Centre helping Syrian families transition to their new life in Canada.”
