Things can be overwhelming for new immigrants when they first arrive in Canada, or even for those here for many years. We can assist by providing information on and signposting to general health, mental health, and well-being services and supports. We also offer in person events*, webinars, podcasts, and social media outreach – supporting immigrants from across the island of Ireland, to find the information they need to get help, cope better, and feel well.
*All of our services are national across Canada – in person newcomer events take place regularly in Vancouver and Toronto. See here for information on when the next event is taking place.

Social Care Program made possible by funding from the St. Patrick’s Benevolent Society of Toronto
In a spirit of compassion, the St. Patrick’s Benevolent Society was established in 1836 to help needy Irish immigrants in Toronto. Over 180 years later, though the nature of the needs has changed, the Society’s interest in supporting newly arrived Irish remains steadfast. Such gestures of human kindness are a most important part of our collective history, illustrating the immeasurable value of benevolent works.
