Community Awareness Program for Immigrants

Immigrant women are often vulnerable, alone and do not understand Canadian law or our way of life. Our Community Awareness Program for Immigrants (CAPI) breaks down barriers and helps them successfully integrate into our community. Through a series of free clinics and workshops, newcomers become aware of their rights and responsibilities within Canada.

Did you know that those in Canada under Temporary Residents Visas who incur a criminal record may have their status removed and be deported?

Our preventative workshops provide newcomers with accurate information regarding Administrative Law, and answers to questions like ones above. This means participants will receive information around housing, employment, processes around Canadian government and legislation, and Canada’s health system. We also provide additional information around immigration documentation and immigration status for newcomers.
