Words From Supporters

I have been a volunteer in the Newcomer Settlement program with The Jamaican Canadian Association since March of 2005. I was interested in the NSP and wanted to work with people from different cultures. This experience has been very satisfying and rewarding, for it has given me an insight into the field of immigration and an understanding of the diverse needs of the public. Also, it has reinforced my interest to work for Citizenship and Immigration. As a volunteer, I have realized how important these services are for many individuals and how there should be more resources of this nature available to immigrants, especially those new to the country.”
