The Vietnamese Community has been involved in expanding Canada’s nation since the earliest days of the Vietnamese immigrant influx. Founded in 1982, VWAT Family Services has been playing an important role in the integration of Vietnamese immigrant families in Canada for over 30 years, by creating and sustaining a cultural Vietnamese centre for newcomers, families, youth and seniors. 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 with the goal of aiding in integration and belonging.
Our programs, services and events are informative, social and provide attendees with a sense of belonging. We offer programs for youth, seniors and newcomers alike where you can learn about the Vietnamese culture, get assistance with your integration to Canada and find out from staff and volunteers how you can help make the lives of other newcomers to the community, a better experience.
