Kitchener – June 20, 2017 – The Cowan Foundation has donated $84,000 to Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region to adapt its Trusting Loving Connections © (TLC) group to meet the needs of Arabic-speaking refugees, First Nations, Metis and Inuit families, and French-speaking audiences.
The need has never been stronger. Since November 2015, more than 40,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Canada and over 1,800 have settled in Waterloo Region1. Today, Waterloo Region falls within Canada’s top 10 Census Metropolitan Areas for immigrant populations and by 2031, almost a third of the population will be a visible minority.
