The Centre for Newcomers' Vision is a community in which people find and create opportunities to fulfill their dreams and participate fully as citizens. CFN engages and participates actively in the community through partnerships with community organizations while contributing to community-based delivery of services to immigrants by supporting mainstream organizations in redeveloping and expanding the services to make them more accessible to newcomers.

This service invites new immigrants to fully participate in civil society and foster more inclusive communities and workplaces for new immigrants. This program works with  communities and individuals in creating positive spaces for social, economic and cultural integration. Our participation in the community is based on partnerships with individuals and organizations who come together to achieve a common objective while harnessing all resources.

Our success is achieved through inclusive practices and effective relationships between newcomers and the broader Calgary community.
