Canada Connections

Canada Connects is a program that matches newcomer individuals and families with​ more established community members who help them learn about Canadian life and take part in community activities. The paired matches​ meet weekly for two hours for at least six months. ISANS supports volunteers and matches by coordinating social events so that they can meet others, share experiences and develop their networks.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers help us create healthier, welcoming, and more inclusive communities. Without our volunteers, we could not effectively deliver many of our programs and services. As a volunteer, you will receive orientation, training, and support from us while we together build a community where all can belong and grow.
