This session will bring together our residents and community groups that wish to help with subject matter experts that can provide the knowledge and contacts that will make their involvement possible.


Date: Thursday, October 1
Time: 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Location: Jean Pigott Place

The session will feature short presentations from previously sponsored families, experts in refugee resettlement and representatives from frontline organizations on how residents and community groups can assist in these resettlement efforts. This will be followed by a Q&A session. Various organizations will also have information tables where residents will be able to further understand the process and sign-up to assist in whichever they can.
