Update on our Resettlement Plan

We are making great strides to prepare for the family’s arrival. Please join us on Thursday, July 28th at 7 pm for an update on our progress to prepare for the arrival of the Karen family we are expecting at the end of August, 2016. All are welcome. Please RSVP to info@wilkinson-sponsors.ca.

The meeting will help you identify how you can assist with the family’s transition to life in Canada and we will provide updates on the following:

  • Housing
  • Material donations
  • Access Alliance
  • Interpreters – language acquisition
  • Family’s arrival

Our most critical need at the moment is to grow the number of volunteers able to assist with settlement support. These individuals would visit the family and assist them with their day-to-day activities such as a grocery shop, a dental appointment or an outing to the park.

As per AURA protocols, anyone working directly with the family must obtain a police clearance letter and complete a two-hour AURA resettlement training.

  • Police clearance: Apply online and notify us at info@wilkinson-sponsors.ca when you receive yours.
  • AURA resettlement training: The next scheduled training is September 12 and registration is open. If you have not yet completed your AURA training, please book a spot in this session as soon as possible.

We hope to see you on the 28th! The location for the meeting is the basement of St. David’s Towers at 51 Donlands Avenue.
