Newcomer Services

Below are lists of resources for Newcomers to Canada, provided by the Kababayan Multicultural Centre

Kababayan Multicultural Centre (KMC)

offers services primarily as a settlement agency. Our staff includes settlement workers who are trained in connecting newcomers with resources that will help them adjust to life in Canada. These resources are mainly for newcomers, for people who have been in Canada for less than 5 years.
