The Syrian Canadian Foundation (SCF) is a volunteer driven non-profit that formed in January 2016, inspired by the Canadian Government’s public commitment of welcoming Syrian refugees and other vulnerable newcomers to Canada. Our mission is to support newcomers and further their integration into Canada by promoting cross-cultural exchange between Canadian and other ethno-cultural communities. We are determined to empower vulnerable newcomers through culturally sensitive programs ranging from mentorship, tutoring, and networking events. Our long-term vision seeks to establish an independent and influential Syrian-Canadian community that is inclusive and supportive to all other Canadians. We believe investing in vulnerable newcomers demonstrates Canadian values and encourages a brighter future.
