Help change lives in our community
Yumna landed in Canada only three days before the Canadian borders closed due to the pandemic. With the support of Immigrant Services Calgary, she found employment in her field of training, and is on her way to building a successful career, and a thriving life in Canada.
Yumna is one of 400,000 Calgarians who were born outside of Canada. Some, like Yumna, came here in search of better opportunities, while others sought refuge from poverty and war. All chose Canada as their forever home.
Despite their desire to succeed in their new homeland, many newcomers fall through the cracks of a complex support system or are delegated to survival jobs and unable to build thriving lives.
Together, we can change that.
Immigrant Services Calgary helps over 10,000 newcomers each year, connecting them to programs and services to unleash their economic, social, and civic potential.
This work would be impossible without donors like you—those who believe in providing newcomers like Yumna with an opportunity to build fulfilling lives and contribute to the social and economic fabric of our society.
By donating to Immigrant Services Calgary today, you can change the lives of newcomers in our community, and help build a stronger, more resilient Calgary and area.
Your gift changes lives.
