Offers support and information to immigrant newcomers to Canada that live in our Elmwood community. Our settlement worker provides support by connecting newcomers with information, programs, and services in the community.
Parents will have a chance to learn about indigenous teachings that can be later used within their own families. Our group always begins and ends with smudging to welcome positive energy when entering and leaving.
“People come here for support, but also for connection—to share news or celebrate an important life event.”
