The Vietnamese Community has been involved in expanding Canada’s nation since the earliest days of the Vietnamese immigrant influx settling in Toronto. Across Canada, there are over 235 immigrant-serving agencies and community organizations that are actively involved in facilitating the settlement and labour market integration of immigrants and VWAT Family Services is one of them.
Founded in 1982, VWAT Family Services plays an important role in the adaptation of Vietnamese immigrant children, youth, seniors and their families in Canada. We have been addressing those needs for 31 years by creating and sustaining a cultural Vietnamese centre for newcomers, families, youth and seniors with the goal of achieving integration and belonging. We are aware of the diverse cultural profile in our community and have a mandate to address the needs of newcomers of all cultural backgrounds.
Explore our website and learn about the programs, services and events which are open to all who are interested. Our programs, services and events are informative, social and provide attendees with a sense of belonging. Come out and learn about the Vietnamese culture, acquire information about your own situation, talk to our staff and volunteers about how you can help to make the lives of newcomers to the community a better experience.
The Vietnamese Women’s Association of Toronto is committed to advancing education, providing supportive counselling, promoting healthy living, encouraging integration for newcomer communities, raising awareness of domestic violence, and fostering community development.
