CultureLink is a settlement and community organization with 30 years’ experience in developing and delivering services to meet the needs of diverse communities. Passionate about providing innovative services, we adapt to changes and create new programs that best respond to and address our clients’ specific needs.
Our team of 74 staff members, speaking more than 30 languages, is dedicated, knowledgeable, and multicultural. We serve between 10,000 and 12,000 participants on average each year.
Our services connect cultures to build welcoming communities. We assist newcomers looking for employment, help families navigate the school system, and provide youth with the skills necessary for bright and successful futures. We support refugees and bring together new and established Canadians.
CultureLink provides a wide range of settlement and community programs from children to seniors. It delivers these programs directly through schools, libraries, community centres, onsite at its premises, and through its partners and over 500 volunteers throughout Toronto. All services are provided at no charge.
Major funders are Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI), the City of Toronto, the United Way of Toronto and York Region, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation. CultureLink also receives contributions from corporations, institutions, foundations and individuals.
