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
