Refugee Connections in Guelph

The Guelph Community Foundation
partnered with The United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin to gather local agencies for a Refugee Impact Meeting in late February 2016.  Our goal was to share and compile a list of resources that are available, and try to match them with needs that agencies are facing as a result of the impact.  Ideally, this information will serve as a resource where agencies can match needs to resources across all organizations in Guelph who support newcomers to our community. 

Make the Connection

SUPPORT AGENCIES: SHARE, USE AND CONNECT!  We invite you to open and print both documents provided below and see if there are any connections you can make between the resources available and your needs.  If you have information to share please contact us and we will update this information and share it with our network.
