IMMIGRANT SERVING ORGANIZATIONS
Immigrant-serving organizations are an excellent place to go for all your settlement needs, including recommendations on different places where you can make community connections. In fact, the organizations themselves are a great place to meet others as they offer a variety of programs and social activities you can take part in. Many also offer host and mentoring programs, which will match you up with another immigrant or Canadian to help you settle.
Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC) have a list of immigration serving organizations.
