CIES Newcomers Resource Fair a Great Success

After two days of information, sharing and networking our first annual Newcomers Resource Fair was no less than a great success. We would like to send a special thank you to all partner organizations from across the city for helping us promote the many services and opportunities available to new immigrants living in Calgary. The event, held once on February 24th, at our SE location in Forest Lawn and again on February 25th at our NE Location in Whitehorn, was very much about the community of Calgary. All those who attended benefited greatly from the collaborative effort of all involved, pointing those who need assistance, advice and information in the best possible directions. A big thank you to to Colin Campbell and Tayebeh Shalmani, our LINC supervisors, for doing a great job of coordinating the event at each of our locations. Last but certainly not least, all for us here at CIES would like to send out a very special thank you to Jovita Dias, Immigrant Legal Education Specialist for the Elizabeth Fry Society of Calgary, whose contributions to the event made it the great success that it was.
