Syrian Newcomers Integration Program
MMCC is running an intensive “Syrian Newcomers Integration Program” for the new Syrian families settled in and around the Mississauga neighborhood. We have identified an urgent need to help resettle the Syrian newcomers who are already in Canada. There are around 250 families who are currently being placed in Mississauga looking for help.

This is a longer term commitment to be assigned as a ‘mentor’ with a specific Syrian newcomer family and to help them integrate into the society. This is a very rewarding position with a support network established to help the families.
