I recently got together with the team at the New Canadian Friendship Centre which operates in northeast Calgary. They serve Immigrants through a variety of programs ranging from ESL classes, sewing groups to youth and kids programming. They even have an international cooking club!
While I met with NCFC, the overwhelming theme that kept coming up was helping newcomers to Canada not only learn language skills but to become a part of their new community and establish meaningful friendships. They welcome people from all corners of the globe and try their best offer things that focus on building relationships.
