The Network offers online workshops addressing issues identified by private sponsors. In addition, we are developing new services, including a monthly online Lunch & Learn series around sponsor-identified topics to provide an opportunity for information-sharing.
Since 2016, we have offered over 15 workshops chosen to meet immediate needs around issues of culture, housing, health and wellbeing, employment, education, ESL, and citizenship barriers and incentives, among others. Participants appreciate the practical tips, expert advice and counsel, and input from individuals with lived experience. They come to the workshops with questions and leave with information to better support those they sponsor. They learn about pitfalls to avoid, and access new ideas and new resources.
Registration opens 30 days prior to a workshop date.
Our 2022 series of workshops include:
Addressing settlement challenges in small and/or rural communities
Affordable Housing for Newcomers
Financial Planning for Newcomers
Addressing Cultural Issues in Parenting Styles
We share specific information with Network participants through regular emails. When you have something that might benefit others, you are encouraged to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will pass the information along to members. We send you information of interest as often as we receive it, highlighting upcoming events or the latest research.
If you are looking for a mentor, or someone who has direct experience with a specific challenge you are facing, let us know by sending an email to email@example.com. We will do our best to connect you with a member who can help.
