I really like this Toronto Newcomer Day video from last year, everyone shared what they love about Toronto.  What do you love about Toronto?

Just shortly after Toronto Newcomer Day, come and visit the TD Gallery at Toronto Reference Library for the new and interesting exhibit called "Destination Canada."

Presented in partnership with Passages Canada, the exhibit explores our diverse experiences of migration, arrival and finding a place of belonging in Canada from early settlement to present day. This exhibit will run from May 20 to July 30.

LSP-150x185Toronto Public Library also offers a variety of newcomer services. Check out our New to Canada page for more information. 

Library Settlement Partnerships is offered at several library branches where settlement workers can help newcomers with their settlement needs. This is funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.

 Be sure to come out for these events!
