If you had $1000, how would you spend that to help other immigrants?

i Oct 23rd No Comments by

One of the things we’ve been really good at is growing the funds we have at the WMN, and it’s time we had a conversation about how we can support other immigrants and newcomers. Are there gaps in services? Are there needs we don’t know about? Do you have ideas for programs and/or services that you want to suggest?

If you do – come to our WMN Advisory Board meeting next Monday October 29, from 5.30 to 7pm.

Maybe you’d like to start an immigrant community garden to grow our own vegetables? How can we help people get better jobs and build their experience and qualifications? Do we need more English support? Do people need support and information about healthcare, education, jobs and work, finding and keeping a place to live, driving, or perhaps getting ready for Canadian citizenship.

These are some of the questions we’ll be asking our Advisory Board and people who come to our meeting next Monday. They are important questions, so if you can’t come yourself, please pass this invitation to anyone you think might be interested.

To get you prepared, here are the notes on our last meeting back in May and before the 2018 Festival – WMN AB minutes May 2018 – and if you want to keep up to date with all the things we do at the Welcome Centre, here’s our WMN Report October 2018
