If you love music and if building welcoming communities is a cause that you care about, please join us for an evening to remember in support of Together Project and our efforts to connect refugee newcomers and Canadians to build stronger more integrated communities.

Please be prepared to share some love – tickets are $250. A tax receipt will be issued for $200. You can buy your tickets and review the event details on Eventbrite.

Within my community and at work, I encourage people to volunteer to help newcomers’ settle and integrate. I talk about how rewarding my volunteer work has been and I try to inspire others to welcome newcomers to Canada. My advice is to see the whole experience as a learning opportunity. When people come from another part of the world, they have something to share with you. You can learn a lot from them. You will need to be patient, learn to be a good listener and a problem solver. There is nothing to lose by making this effort to welcome someone to Canada but there is a lot to gain.
