Since the start, the SCF has been working alongside a number of organizations and individuals to grow the capacity of our programs and strive for excellence in newcomer support. From connecting English tutor mentors with newcomer mentees, launching a Women’s Wellness Program, co-organizing our social dinners, and much more. The extent and strength of our programs would not be as far reaching without these collaborations. We are grateful for each of our partners for their continuous support and commitment in making a positive difference in the lives of newcomer communities across the GTA and Canada!
