Mapping Toronto North Services

We are working on developing a list of current services and programs that could be used by new Canadians from Syria in Toronto North, their sponsors and service providers. We hope to complete this resource by early January and present it at the info session & fair for service providers and sponsors. Please stay tuned for more details on that. We also hope to get a better understanding of what information and/or training you might need to effectively serve newcomers from Syria.
