Welcoming New Canadians

We strive to empower immigrants and refugees to become full and equal members of Canadian society and to provide community leadership to ensure cultural integration in a welcoming community.

Renovations Underway

Between Monday, November 12 and Friday, November 23, some renovations are occurring at the New Canadians Centre Peterborough which has affected some programming.

Our main entrance on the top floor is closed. Clients, staff and friends of the NCC who are visiting us during these two weeks are asked to enter the St. James United Church building, proceed to the second floor and follow the signs to the back entrance. If you require accommodations, please contact us so that we can arrange an accessible meeting space.

Our Cobourg Office is Moving!

NCC Cobourg will be closed from Nov 19 to 27! We resume operations from our new location at 600 William St. on November 28! Tour our new space on the 28th at 10:30am during the Open House!
