“Mary was a godsend. The whole community opened up. As an immigrant to Canada and Guelph, I felt alone. Every system puzzled me. I met Mary, a volunteer ‘Community Connector’ who introduced me to the right people/services at the right time. Thanks to Mary’s help, I feel connected, welcome, and able to give back to this community.” This is what people will say about the Community Connector Initiative! This idea will build an informal network of volunteers to provide information and connection for immigrants to Guelph. We already have a coordinator! We need additional funding for our coordinator and passionate partners to make our pilot project a reality!
