Newcomers onBoard program launches
We are happy to launch Newcomers onBoard with support from the Government of Ontario through the Multicultural Capacity Grant. The initiative is part of the DiverseCity onBoard program with a focus on increasing involvement and participation of newcomers and recent immigrants on local boards.
The program will provide one-to-one and group information sessions to recent immigrants/and new Canadians on the benefit of civic participation, particularly volunteering on boards and other community committees and groups.
The program will also provide access to board governance training to 20-25 selected newcomers/recent immigrants/and new Canadians
