Excellent Volunteer Opportunities for Newcomers: Library Champions Project

Do you want to gain Canadian work experience, build skills, meet new people and give back to your community all at the same time? Consider becoming a Library Champion.

Over the last three years, the Library Champions Project has trained more than 950 new immigrants. With improved communication and presentation skills, these champions have shared library and settlement information with more than 60,000+ other new immigrants!

If you’re interested in becoming a Library Champion, you must register for and attend an information session.
