The role of business at a time of giving

In a recent letter to Chambers of Commerce across the country, Canadian Chamber President & CEO Perrin Beatty sums up how business can meet the challenge and contribute to welcoming Syrian refugees. 

The Peterborough Chamber of Commerce is also a member of the Peterborough Immigration Partnership (PIP).  Through PIP, the New Canadians Centre has informed us of their ongoing efforts.  They are currently working with 19 sponsor groups in the City and County of Peterborough and another 18 in municipalities around Peterborough. Three families have already arrived, including one earlier this week.  

A Refugee Resettlement Task Force is in place through the New Canadians Centre. The task force will work at a strategic level, to ensure community collaboration behind the inventory of resources (housing, clothing, medical, etc.) that can be accessed to support refugee resettlement. Information on donation of goods, ways to help and/or volunteer, and how the process works is available on the New Canadians Centre website: www.nccpeterborough.ca
