Community Connections Program (formally HOST)
Community Connections is a program designed to help you learn more about Canadian culture and your new community through participation in a wide variety of activities and events.
You may also be "matched" with a community volunteer who can provide useful information and support during the settlement process, i.e. learning about the education system, becoming familiar with transportation services, occupational information, practicing spoken English, etc.
A Conversation Café provides a relaxed environment where you can practise your spoken English. This is a great way to make new friends – and gain confidence and skills for job interviews!
Women Welcoming Diversity
A group of newcomer women meets every month for a variety of activities and topics. It is an excellent way to meet new people and make friends while learning more about life in Canada.
Multicultural Picnics, Festivals and other events are always being scheduled so check the ISS calendar often for the latest!
