In support of Newcomers on Vancouver’s Westside: Community Development Updates
In consultation with a wide variety of newcomer community members and service providers, Kitsilano Neighbourhood House & the Westside Literacy Task Force has identified the absence and need for accessible, affordable supports for newcomers on Vancouver’s Westside.
Newcomer priorities on the Westside have been identified as:
• Language practice & learning
• Support and inclusion opportunities
• Increased community literacy for newcomers
• Access to activities, information, resources & referral
Kitsilano Neighbourhood House and the Westside Literacy Task force are working to collaborate with settlement agencies and service providers to develop newcomer supports on Vancouver’s Westside, in accordance with findings from the Westside Community Literacy Plan and Newcomer Asset-Mapping Dialogues.
We would love to talk to you about these community needs & opportunities!
