Every year Canada welcomes many people of African descent into our Nation’s Capital. Navigating the complex Canadian system is a challenge even to those who have been here for years. This committee is mandated to help ease the pain by working with partner organizations to ensure new immigrants from our community are smoothly settled and integrated into the Canadian system. If you’re passionate about helping people succeed in careers, this committee is for you. Specifically, this committee will undertake among other things:
- Career/Professional Support i.e. develop a mechanism for professional development support e.g. education and career mentorship programs for youth
- Providing immigration, settlement support and guidance to members
- Seniors & Elder Support
- Emergency Relief Support i.e. such as from natural disasters, death in family etc.
