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, there will be some renovations occurring at the New Canadians Centre Peterborough as we work to make improvements to our space. During this time, some programming will be affected.

Our main entrance on the top floor will be closed off. 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.
