YMCA of Kitchener – Waterloo Cross Cultural & Community Services and Citizenship and Immigration Canada have been valuable partners with the Citizenship Program offered by St. Louis.
The front staff, the settlement workers and the language and employment assessors at YMCA of Kitchener are sharing Citizenship Program schedule and basic information about it with anyone interested in taking Citizenship classes. On the other hand, if some of the Citizenship Program students need help with completing the application because their English is not good, the teachers can refer them to the Y to a settlement worker, who can spend time filling the application and answering their questions. This service is free and they can also get their documents photocopied without charge. More information about the services provided by the Y can be found on the webpage: www.kwymca.org.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada - Government of Canada is Canada’s official source of immigration and citizenship information.
Since 1869, Canada’s immigration programs have helped build a community of citizens respected throughout the world. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) was established in 1994 to link immigration services with citizenship registration, to promote the unique ideals all Canadians share and to help build a stronger Canada.
