On Saturday March 28th, 2020 CFN invites you to celebrate the city of Calgary, it's kaleidoscope of culture and diversity, and the undeniable potential each and every Calgarian holds.
CFN's 5th Annual Fundraiser
On Saturday, March 28th, 2020, CFN invites you to join us for CFN's 5th Annual Fundraiser: Celebrating Diversity. We are already working on putting together a great night and currently looking for performers, sponsorships and venue possibilities. Please contact us at for any inquiries.
On March 28th come help us build community, have fun and most of all, work towards the Calgary we imagine and strive for each day – a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfill their dreams.
Established in 1988, the Centre for Newcomers provides training programs and collaborative support services for immigrants and refugees to promote full integration, cultural diversity, community participation and citizenship to more than 10,000 newcomers each year. At CFN, you will find a full suite of cost-free services and programs for immigrants and refugees in Calgary, including Settlement & Integration Services; Career Development & Job Search; English Language Training (LINC); EthniCity Catering work experience; Real Me Youth Program; Multicultural Peer Mentorship; Volunteer Development; LGBTQ+ Newcomer Settlement; Career Services for Professional Artists, Mental Health Workshops & Referral Assistance, Seniors Programs, Financial Empowerment Workshops, Volunteer-led Refugee Integration; and Indigenous Education for Newcomers.
CFN is a key not-for-profit resource centre with a mandate to not only work with newcomers towards their personal settlement and integration goals, but to also equally work with the broader Calgary community to welcome newcomers. It is CFN’s mission to support newcomers and the receiving community in becoming diverse and united, through services and initiatives that create conditions of success for newcomers and that foster a welcoming environment in Calgary. We view the integration of newcomers as a two-way process of experience, influence and impact between newcomers and the communities that welcome them. Services at the Centre are influenced by and embody our values; the values of equality and respect, collaboration, communication, professionalism, caring, along with diversity and inclusion.
Our vision is a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfill dreams and participate fully as citizens. We strive to always welcome newcomers, and support them to settle and integrate, to work collaboratively and in partnership with others, and to create a workplace culture that is founded on respect, co-operation and trust.
