Celebrating Community! Privately Sponsored Refugees

A number of settlement agencies serving immigrants in the Peel Region – Peel Multicultural Council, Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services, Afghan Women’s Organization, Newcomer Center of Peel, and the Local Immigration Partnership in Peel (Peel Newcomer Strategy Group), have collaboratively organized an exclusive event for private sponsoring groups and privately sponsored refugees (PSRs).Thumbnail

The objective of this event is to connect with private sponsoring groups and privately sponsored refugees, assess their needs and provide settlement and other services accordingly. The organizers are expecting that about up to one hundred and fifty private sponsors and newcomer families who recently arrived in the region and have not been fully acquainted or received newcomer services will be attending the event.

In this event, our invited speakers will address a wide range of topics including but not limited to family sponsorship, accessing community resources, and information about employment related programs and services. The event will also include cultural and musical presentation, information fair by community organizations, and networking opportunities.
