Community Connections (CC) is a volunteer based program in which newcomers to Canada are matched with community volunteers who help them to learn about Canadian values and traditions.
The objective of the Community Connections Program is to help immigrants overcome the stress of moving to a new country.
As a volunteer mentor, there are plenty of ways to assist a newcomer, including skills development activities, academic tutoring, and participating in community events or casual social gatherings. The Program Coordinator will provide training and ongoing support during the mentoring process.
