Thank You United Way of NL
April 06, 2016
The Association for New Canadians would like to sincerely thank the United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador for supporting the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program and Diversity Training Initiative. Thanks in part to funding provided through the 2015 Community Fund, the Association was able to deliver the following programs across Newfoundland and Labrador:
• Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) Program which supports various community groups, businesses, private citizens, and faith-based organizations as they seek to privately sponsor refugee families here in Newfoundland and Labrador. During 2015-16, over 50 sponsorship applications were initiated as part of the program;
• Diversity Training Initiative which promotes the value and importance of diversity, multiculturalism, and cross-cultural awareness across the province. During 2015-16, 128 presentations were delivered to approximately 5,600 participants and over 250 information packages were distributed to a multitude of businesses and community agencies/groups across the province.
Funding from the United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador has been instrumental in supporting our work and we would like to offer our sincerest gratitude to them for their continued support of our agency!
