The Canadian Association of Family Resource Programs (FRP Canada) is pleased to announce that it will soon be distributing a new kit of resources across the country. These materials have been developed with funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
Over the past year, under the Welcome Here project, family resource programs and settlement agencies in communities across Canada have collaborated together to offer new and improved programs to newcomer families. The Welcome Here Resource Kit will share some of the lessons learned in these communities. The kit will also contain some useful tools for community programs including a multi-lingual welcome poster, multi-lingual parent resource sheets, ideas for preventing racism, a colourful brochure designed to invite newcomers to visit their local family resource centre, and links to other resources.
All materials will also be downloadable from the project website
