1001 Things to Do to Make You a Real Torontonian!

Free Service to Newcomers @ GTA--BIG CITY, Small World

Let's build a friendly community with people originally from outside Toronto or all over the world, as well as anyone who would like to meet people of different cultural backgrounds or to provide assistance to them.

Language, Job hunting, Information/Free seminars (leisure, living, immigration, legal, education, community resources...), Experience sharing (do & don't...), Settling in general, Commute assistance (carpools/rides, license tests), Expanding social circle and horizon, Tutoring/Mentoring, Health/Emergency...

A newcomer can use your help for a long list of things. Many of us were also once a "newcomer" to an unfamiliar country, city, or even a totally different culture, and we know how that feels.

It's not that easy to get people to volunteer, but I am sure there are quite a few willing to help from this group. Let's try our best and make this happen!

Your contributions in any way will be valued and appreciated!

PS: You do NOT need to be a NEWCOMER to join this group. "Native English speakers" are always among the highest demand for "community partnership" of International newcomers. You may help a newcomer learn English, and at the same time you get to learn a new culture, language, and expand/diversify your social circle... And we all like to do some good deeds:)

More events, fun activities, and free services to be facilitated soon... Stay tuned!! <br>

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
