Background:

This directory has been made possible after a grant was allocated by the City of Toronto’s Access and Equity in 2004 allocation to undertake a research on the existing resources available for the newcomer settlement and integration in the African/Caribbean communities in Toronto.

This directory has been developed partly to assist newly arrived immigrants access available resources in their communities, and also to assist settlement workers, community/church leaders and others working with newcomers in making effective referrals to relevant services within the African/Caribbean communities in Toronto.

The program area in this directory consists of Family Counseling, Employment, Settlement Services, Interpretation and/Translation, Children Services, Community Development, Training, Women’s Services, Immigration, Housing, Health Services, Legal Services, Youth Services, etc.

Users of this directory are advised to contact the agencies directly in case of additional information, which may not be contained in this directory.

Every day hundreds of newcomers like you begin a new life in Canada. Some are refugees fleeing persecution, others come to join family, and others again are seeking to make a better life for themselves. In all, over 200,000 immigrants settle in Canada each year. Their backgrounds and personal histories may be widely different and each one’s experience on arrival is unique. For many new immigrants, there are, nevertheless certain shared experiences, as you make a home for yourselves in Canada. You must find somewhere to live, search for a job and familiarize yourselves with a different society and culture. Often you have to learn a new language. In the process, you may experience success, but also alienation, loneliness, frustration, xenophobia and racism. Refugees often face particular challenges in adapting because their arrival was not planned or a matter of choice, but a matter of survival.

That is why Africanadian Mediation and Community Services, based on the research conducted on the above named subject, put this directory together for use in the African/Caribbean communities in Toronto. AMCS was established purposely as a community based organization to provide mediation and settlement services, which includes housing, employment and education to people of African/Caribbean origin in the city of Toronto. However, a major setback has been the lack of data on the black minority of theAfrican/Caribbean who are very visible now but may not have their needs met because of the vast variations in their socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.

This directory seeks to identify some of the facilities, which are available for Blacks to enhance newcomer settlement and integration of the Black immigrant and/or refugee population in the Greater Toronto Area.
