40 Years of the New Canadians Centre

Forty years ago 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. This group eventually grew into the New Canadians Centre, offering expanded services to immigrants and refugees.
