ICA’s Chief Executive Officer Has Retired
Imagine having to decide between joining an army in the midst of a civil war or leaving a career you worked so hard to establish. Ammar, an ICA client, faced this devastating decision in 2017. Like so many refugees fleeing Syria, his is a story of struggle, resiliency and hope.
- ICA has impacted the sector by working at the intersection of arts, research, and social services which has deepened our collective understanding of the lived experiences of immigrants, refugees, and racialized people.
To meet the growing demands for ICA’s services, we are providing an ever-expanding array of programs from Settlement Workers in Schools to resettlement of refugees and, more recently, diversity, equity, and inclusion training programs. Thanks to strong community support from people like you, we have helped tens of thousands of people establish new homes here and share their skills, talents, and experience with the community.
ICA is in a strong position to meet the challenges that lie ahead. We have a thoughtful and talented Board of Directors, volunteers, and dedicated, knowledgeable and capable staff members who ensure ICA’s programs are carried out with the utmost integrity and quality. ICA’s Board of Directors is leading the search process to fill the CEO role.
These are turbulent times for all of us but, in particular, for those fleeing war, violence, and persecution. Thank you for standing by ICA as we navigate this important transition and provide essential support to newcomers to our region.
