When newcomers arrive in Canada, the experience can be overwhelming. They must learn how to navigate everyday life in an unfamiliar country, with a different culture, different systems and different customs. For newcomers, ending their financial footing can be a challenge.
Through community-based support groups, the New Foundations program gives newcomers the opportunity to develop essential life skills like how to and a job in Canada, how to open a registered savings account or how to create a plan to meet savings goals. The New Foundations program is giving newcomer families the tools they need to thrive in Canada.
