Cares for newcomers and refugees
FaithWorks Ministry Partners provide resettlement support that help new Canadians and refugees overcome language and cultural barriers that can make a fresh start in a new country feel overwhelming.
I was introduced to the Bridge Program while I was in OCI… Through this amazing experience I have obtained the tools to help me cope with negative feelings and thoughts… The Bridge also helped me with things like getting me on Ontario Works, get into school, get OSAP, provided clothes that have been donated and provided some school supplies. If I did not have this program available to me, I would not be going to college.

I love The Dam because I don’t have a good sense of family. I’ve been on my own for two years and I was very depressed before I started coming. Then I came here, I got a sense of safety and family.
