We are happy to provide information
and resources to help you settle in!

Newcomers to Canada

Welcome! We are blessed by a diversity of nationalities represented in our church, so there is a very good chance you will meet others here who share your cultural heritage. Our desire is to greet you with:

Compassion: We are here to offer care and support. We understand that leaving your home country and arriving in Canada is an exciting transition—but it can be a difficult one too.

Connection: We can help you connect to practical resources you need to begin your new life here.

Community: We would be pleased to introduce you to the opportunity for friendship with other internationals and Canadians who are part of our community.
