Immigrant Services Guelph Wellington open house is May 9

The Guelph and District Multicultural has moved to a new location at Unit 4 and 5, 926 Paisley and Imperial Road as a part of expanded services being offered to people new to Canada.

In addition to language as­sess­ment and settlement servic­es, child care will be offered while parents receive services, and additional settlement work­ers are hired to address the city’s growing immigrant population.

“We are thrilled to be in our new location, and able to ex­pand our services to Guelph Wellington.” said Roya Rab­bani, executive director of the new organization.

Currently one in five of Guelph’s citizens come from outside Canada, which is above the national average. That is ex­pected to continue to grow with the city’s expected popu­lation increases. The event runs 11am to 2pm, with a ribbon cutting followed by barbecue of hamburgers and hot dogs
