The MCAF invites newcomers and longer settled immigrants with a high level of English and French language skills, and representing diverse ethno-cultural and linguistic communities, to participate in various workshops and train as a Cultural Broker.
Cultural brokers are connected with newcomers who are facing multiple barriers to settlement and integration. A cultural broker will enhance access to community services for the newcomer, and supports organizations in the community who wish to offer culturally sensitive and inclusive services to newcomers.
