CIES Events - Newcomer Resource Fair

Here at CIES we strongly believe that ethno-cultural community organizations play important role in settlement and integration sector and as a result we are always searching ways to better serve the immigrant community.With this in mind we are holding our first annual Newcomer Resource Fair.

As highlighted by our Community Investor Series, at the heart of this event is our belief that the non-profit sector is an important contributor to the economic health and vitality of Calgary. All of us here at CIES strive towards collaboration with our non-profit family, as in the end we are all here to help those who need it most, and by extension, help in making Calgary the best city in can possibly be for all who live here.

Join us and partner organizations from across the city as we promote the services and opportunities available to new immigrants living in Calgary. This event is free of charge, is open to all members of the community and we be held twice, once on February 24th, (11:30 am to 3:00 pm) at our SE location in Forest Lawn and again on February 25th (11:30 am to 3:00 pm) at our NE Location in Whitehorn.
