YMCA Centre for Immigrant Programs


The YMCA provides immigrant youth, children and their families with a variety of program and outreach services. Our approach is to deliver community based support in a Centre that is inclusive and welcoming, as well as to provide onsite services for students at several partner schools.

YMCA Immigrant Programs helps immigrants to Canada settle into their new homes in the Halifax Regional Municipality, and supports the mainstream population in understanding the issues and barriers newcomers face while adjusting and adapting to a new language, culture, climate and community, all while maintaining their own. With funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and Nova Scotia Office of Immigration (NSOI), our YMCA offers several programs.
