Bienvenue à l’Immigrant – Lasalle was founded in 2018 by Henriette Mvondo. It’s a community-based non-profit organization, officially recognized in September 2017 by the Borough of Ville LaSalle, dedicated to welcoming and helping new immigrants, regardless their country of origin. With events all year long, we want to help new comers making themselves known and finding all the necessary information to ease their integration in their new environment in Canada. We also want to fight prejudice and making of everybody’s differences discovery opportunities.
We contribute to the flourishing and socio-cultural development of the host communityAmong other things, we offer advice, help, listening and support.
According to statistics, Canada receives several types of immigrants: permanent residents, skilled workers, refugees, asylum seekers, international students and visitors. In either case, all of these people need basic orientation in order to allow them to better integrate into their new environment. Several community organizations are working in this area however, the fact remains that many of these immigrants remain without support that allow them to smoothen their integration.
