Mission, Vision & Values
Since 1988 the Centre for Newcomers has been a key resource for immigrants and refugees of all nationalities. Located in the Marlborough commercial district in Pacific Place Mall, the Centre services individuals from all across Calgary and is easily accessible by public transit, either bus or C-Train.
Our vision is the ultimate goal, the world we imagine for Calgary:
A community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfil dreams and participate fully as citizens.
- equality and respect
- diversity and inclusion
These values are reflected in our mission:
- To support newcomers and the receiving community in becoming a diverse, united community, through services and initiatives that create conditions of success for newcomers and that foster a welcoming environment in Calgary.
We view the integration of newcomers as a two-way process of experience, influence and impact between newcomers and the communities that welcome them.The Centre for Newcomers provides local, provincial and national leadership in immigrant settlement and integration, contributing as a key member of these collaborative associations:
- Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies
- Private Career Development Contractors Association
- Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance/ Association Canadien
