Effective 2019: Please note that our Group Services Programs are on hold until further notice!


Newcomer Support Groups

Our Newcomer (Women) Support Groups are currently offered in Spanish, Korean and Russian. It is a group for newcomers to meet with other members of their community to share their experiences, build community connection and discuss topics of mutual interest.  Some groups are specifically for women, whilst others are open to all.  Topics vary in each group, pending group interest and demand.


Some of the topics covered are:

  • sharing our stories

  • the psychological and social impact of moving to Canada

  • keeping ourselves healthy; inside and out

  • better understanding of Canadian cultural customs & norms

  • family relationships

  • stress management

  • mindfulness

  • parenting topics  

  • financial literacy topics
