What's Happening This Month
We will be continuing our Building Bridges for its last month. If you haven’t attended any of the programs yet be sure to see one before it’s done, did we mention there are cookies?
As it is November, we want to take a moment to thank all of the brave men and women that have fought and continue to fight for our safety and for this country. We keep this day dear to our hearts and will not forget the ultimate sacrifice countless Canadians have made for us. Be sure to support our veterans this year by purchasing a poppy and taking two minutes of silence on November 11.
We are in our last month for the Building Cultural Bridges as we have added on new dates. Each week there are more members of the community joining us, so to be sure to come early for a good seat. The program starts at 7:30 every Wednesday until November 22th.
Our newest program is Info with an Officer, aimed towards immigrants or new Canadian citizens, but everyone is welcome to join! Feel comfortable in a safe environment to have your questions answered by police officers and legal experts. This will run every Tuesday from October 3 until November 28.

Don’t forget that Santa will also be attending, so you better be good! Different cultural groups will be able to showcase what Christmas means to them in their culture, so if you are interested in learning about traditions then this is the event to go to!
