Your Community to Enjoy
March 09, 2016
On Wednesday, March 9th, the ANC hosted the first installment in a series of information workshops called “Your Community to Enjoy.” The event provided newly-arrived refugee families with presentations designed to expand upon the settlement services offered by the ANC, including information on the culture of safety, protection, and human rights in Canada, as well as the Education and Support for Employment (EASE) Program delivered by the ANC.
We would like to thank representatives from the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, Human Rights Commission, and Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador for presenting at this event.
We would also like to extend our sincerest thanks to:
• Johnson & Johnson for generously donating care packages containing various essentials (soap, shampoo, etc.) for each family in attendance; and,
• The Some Warm Welcome Project and the Bee Cave Public Library in Bee Cave, Texas, for providing over 100 hand-knitted items, all affixed with a "Welcome to Canada" message, for everyone in attendance.
