WE NEED YOUR HELP! GET INVOLVED
As a non-profit organization, ICA would not be able to help newcomers reach their goals without the generosity of the community, organizations and businesses who get involved each year. We are thankful for their support and are continuing to recruit other community members to help us with our mission in building cultural connections.
ICA is a non-profit organization who is funded through federal grants and through community and business donations. Please consider helping ICA continue to build cultural connections by providing a donation.
Mentoring Services connects internationally trained professionals with qualified local mentors to help guide newcomers along their career development path. If you are trained professional this is a great way to give back to the community, provide your knowledge and expertise and help a newcomer get off to a good start!
Besides making a donation to ICA, there are other ways to help us create welcoming and inclusive communities. We are always looking for mentors, volunteers and community supporters that want to help newcomers to our community.
ICA will continue to assist community sponsoring organizations or five or more Canadian citizens or permanent residents who get together to sponsor a refugee or refugees. Sponsoring groups assist with financial obligations, as well as the reception, housing, and care of the refugee newcomers when they arrive to the region.
We value volunteering as an opportunity to welcome newcomers and build a respectful and inclusive community. We appreciate the wonderful work of our volunteers for all that they do to make ICA what is today.
The CPN is a group of over 180 local agencies, businesses and institutions committed to building diverse, welcoming and inclusive communities in Greater Victoria. CPN members work to develop their capacity by sharing resources and information aimed at promoting and supporting our diverse region.
