Pre-Arrival for Refugee Youth
Office Hours of Operation:
Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The YMCA provides newcomer children, youth, and their families with a variety of program and outreach services. Our approach is to deliver community-based support that is inclusive and welcoming. We also provide on-site services for students at several partner schools.
Our YMCA Centre for Immigrant Programs helps newcomers to Canada settle into their new communities while also supporting the community in understanding the issues and barriers they face. With funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the Nova Scotia Office of Immigration, our YMCA offers several programs to help immigrants feel at home and engaged in our community.
