In the last two years, our staff have been working with an unparalleled number of individuals and families in crisis.
We need to ensure we are able to support those fleeing their countries and other newcomers to Canada in times of need.
Founded in 1979, The New Canadians Centre Peterborough (NCC) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting immigrants, refugees and other newcomers in the Peterborough and Northumberland regions.
A vibrant and inclusive community where people who are new to Canada thrive and are valued.
We empower people who are new to Canada, so they can be recognized as equal and valued members of Canadian society, and we provide leadership to cultivate their meaningful economic, social, and cultural inclusion in our community.
Respect, Equity and Inclusion, Collaboration, Dedication, Celebration
“If you look at the fabric of our community you can see the impact the NCC has had. It’s evident in our schools, social networks, and community organizations.
Look at your circle of friends. Who has been or will be touched by the work of this organization?
I’m always inspired by the possibility and the far-reaching impact of the good work of the NCC.”
Our Commitment to Anti-Racism
At the New Canadians Centre, we commit to making the pursuit of equity and inclusion our way of life.
We commit to empowering the newcomers and refugees we serve, by:
- Convening a newcomer and refugee-led advisory group to advise on programs and services
- Engaging newcomers and refugees in training to respond to racism and discrimination
- Helping newcomers and refugees to navigate opportunities to be leaders in the community.
