Kenyan Canadian Association through its Newcomers and Settlement Program has continued to positively impact the migrant, immigrants and refugees in the broader black community across Canada by offering much-needed services even as their numbers continue to grow and their needs become more dire.
Canada welcomes more than 400,000 new immigrants and over a million temporary foreign workers and international students each year. These newcomers not only play an essential role in Canada by filling labour shortages, but they also bring new perspectives and talents to our communities, and enriching our society as a whole.
