Training Webinars

Since 2020 and the COVID global pandemic, we, like many others, were forced to go online with our training events. 2020 was a good year for us to jump into hosting online events to train and equip staff, volunteers and teachers in both churches and other organizations to better prepare to meet the needs of newcomers.

If your life intersects with people from other cultures, these workshops will benefit you!

Our workshops will help you understand and appreciate people from different cultures and develop more effective ways of communicating with them. They will also be helpful for newcomers to Canada who want to learn more about Canadian culture.
