In 1979, a small group of local community members gathered to sponsor refugees fleeing the communist regime in Vietnam. They formed the Peterborough Newcomer Language Orientation Committee (PNLOC) in order to welcome and provide support to refugees. In 1987, PNLOC incorporated and the New Canadians Centre Peterborough was born as a non-profit organization offering expanded services.
In 2019/20, we celebrated 40 years of the New Canadians Centre.
This would not be possible without the work of our community partners, donors and volunteers, who support our mission year after year.
Thank You for standing with us!
