This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Together Project

Together Project fosters integration of Government-Assisted Refugee (GAR) newcomers by facilitating access to social networks. They match volunteer Welcome Groups of five or more Canadians (or established newcomers) with GAR newcomers to develop social capital, which helps to foster newcomer independence and rapid and durable integration. Together project wants to deepen its impact by enhancing their model through further social capital research (building off of Toronto Foundation’s benchmark study), developing and formalizing relevant curriculum for volunteer training, and strengthening their evaluation and reporting mechanisms.

Together Project is a project of TIDES Canada
