Brock University and the Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre signed a Memorandum of Understanding in August 2019, with the goal to improve the well-being of newcomers to Canada in Niagara. The agreement strengthens a partnership based on a mutual goal of helping those new to Canada through research, outreach and support services.
“Brock has a role to play in helping to develop the knowledge and skill sets that will enable individuals to become contributors to and champions of their new home. We are pleased to partner with Niagara Folk Arts to help the community embrace new members and welcome new friends and neighbours.”
President, Brock University
“As a newcomer on my journey settling in Canada, receiving service at Niagara Folk Arts and then connecting with Brock were both amazing experiences. Tying these two amazing organizations together through this formalized partnership will continue to open doors to newcomers like me and many others to achieve our best selves. That is what both our organizations represent.”
