  • Obtain a letter of reference and /or a referral
  • Learn about Canadian society by interacting with people outside of your family and community
  • Practice and improve your language and communication skills (writing, speaking, listening)
  • Overcome feelings of isolation and build self-confidence
  • Network and meet new people
  • Be a role model by sharing what you have learned with other newcomers and recent immigrants
  • Contribute to and feel a part of your new community!
