Irish Canadian Immigration Centre hasn't added a story.
Will you give ten bucks to I/CAN? Ten bucks for our ten year anniversary!
The Eamonn O’Loghlin Irish Canadian Immigration Centre assists Irish diaspora from across the island of Ireland, offering outreach and information, nationally, in 3 key areas: Immigration, Employment, Social Services.
I/CAN receives 75% of its annual funding from the Government of Ireland Emigrant Support Program. The Centre is responsible for raising the other 25%.
To ensure the sustainability of the organization through the next decade of operations, and to continue to provide critical supports to Irish new arrivals, this ten-year anniversary appeal is crucial.
I/CAN does not typically fundraise--we apply for community grants and identify and seize opportunities for corporate sponsorships. This is the first time in ten years we have reached out to our clients--your participation will make a real impact on the experiences of other Irish new arrivals in Canada. Hear some of their stories below.
“I think I needed to hear a friendly voice in the midst of all this.”
“I have no where else to turn to.”
“I just wanted to thank you for all your help preparing me with the hints and tips for the Canadian market. It is such a relief to be set up in a great role having only landed 3 weeks ago.”
“I have spent hours upon hours trying to get clarity on all of this and you have helped so much.”
"You gave me so much information I got ahead of myself and forgot to say thank you! It has helped me tremendously.
"I would like to thank you for being there for me through this trying time. You’re help has been beyond supportive throughout this process."
“I’d just like to say thank you for having us this morning. It was such a lovely meeting lots of friendly mums and toddlers. You are so welcoming and are doing such a fantastic job.”
"Just want to send a short email and thanking you for all your help over the last 6 + years, from fixing issues over my work permit, to getting my permit residence approved, and now finally after everything I get my invite to take the oath of citizenship. If it wasn’t for you guys and all the effort you put in to helping the Irish here I don’t think I would and I’m sure a lot others wouldn’t still be here."
"I dread to think about the possible outcome to my son's dark place had I not been able to contact someone directly to support when I could not be physically there for him...an invaluable resource."
