Special Programs

Syria Newcomers Project

The ACCT offers specialized settlement and community building services targeted at the needs of Syrian newcomers and sponsor families. Through our ‘Together for Syria’ Initiative, we connect Syrian refugees and newcomers with local services, opportunities and networks, to help Syrians build a new home in Canada.

Our services are:

For Syrian newcomers: We can provide you with counselor support to facilitate the settlement process and connect you with the Arab community in the Greater Toronto Area.

For sponsor groups: We can connect you with Arabic speaking settlement experts and provide counselor support to bridge cultural gaps.

We have also created www.welcomingsyrians.com, an online platform for sponsor groups that will constantly be updated with services, event, programs, and resources that will be beneficial to their sponsored families. An online forum is there for the sponsor groups to help them stay connected.

For everybody else: We can provide training and workshops on cultural safety and sensitivity.
