Event description

Description

This session will focus on welcoming efforts in Ottawa: what is being done at this time, what resources front-line workers need and how we, collectively, can improve our welcoming efforts. As part of the event, we have invited an array of individuals who work directly or indirectly with newcomers in order to facilitate these life-altering events. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to discuss the opportunities and challenges of resettling in Ottawa with front-line workers and resettlement champions from our community.

Please RSVP as space is limited.
