$250,000 in support provided to newcomer, settlement and refugee programs across Ontario

TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2021 /CNW/ - TD Bank Group has committed to supporting more than 20 local community programs focusing on newcomer, settlement and refugee programs across Ontario. The $250,000 contribution comes from the bank's broader corporate citizenship strategy and platform, the TD Ready Commitment, launched in 2017 with a goal to invest $1 billion toward social-impact initiatives and programming to help contribute to the resiliency of our communities by 2030.

For newcomers to Canada, particularly in 2021, the stress and uncertainty of figuring out life in a new country is extremely real and personal. The intention of these donations is to provide newcomers an opportunity to develop connections within their new communities and make a better future for themselves and their families in cities and towns across Ontario.

"With these donations, TD is working with community groups to support newcomers and help to ensure they're set up for success. We know that supporting these programs can help newcomers feel well-adjusted and integrated into their local communities, which in turn, helps them thrive and contribute to make our communities more resilient," said Tara-Lynn Hughes, Senior Vice President, Greater Ontario Region, TD Bank Group.

"We are pleased to receive a donation from TD to support our mission of empowering immigrants and refugees to become full and equal members of our community," says Andy Cragg, executive director of New Canadians Centre Peterborough, one of the more than 20 groups that received unrestricted program support through this investment. "This support will go a long way to helping individuals and families who are new to the Peterborough area, and we are grateful for the support to help newcomers in their journeys toward a successful integration in our community."

Settlement, newcomer and refugee programs

The chosen programs help many newcomers settle successfully in Canada and meet initial basic needs during this critical phase of their lives. Organizations receiving support in communities across Ontario include:
