Our Mission

The Arab Community Centre of Toronto (ACCT) is a non-profit, non-political, and non-religious settlement and community services organization. We assist individuals and families in building lives in Canada through a multi-service, inclusive, and culturally-sensitive approach, in cooperation with communities. Our mission is to empower newcomers in Canada and strengthen local communities.

The ACCT has been serving newcomers of all cultures, religions, and ethnicities since 1973.
Every service is as unique as the communities we serve.


We provide information, referral, and support to newcomers to Canada from the moment they land until they become self-sufficient, productive, and engaged citizens.
