In 2023, Canada welcomed more than 470,000 newcomer immigrants.

While Canada continues to embrace diversity and growth, newcomers still face significant challenges, including language barriers, finding employment, accessing affordable housing, accessing support systems and integrating into the community. These obstacles can make the transition to their new lives overwhelming and stressful.

 

At Kababayan Mulitcultural Centre, we exist to bridge these gaps. With our 46-year legacy, we provide tailored, client-centered programs and services designed to support newcomers every step of the way, helping them overcome
these challenges and thrive in their new home.
