Together Project connects Government-Assisted Refugee (GAR) newcomers and Canadians for friendship and settlement support. These relationships enrich us all.


Building on Canada’s unique model of private sponsorship, Together Project matches Government-Assisted Refugees (GARs) with Welcome Groups of five or more volunteers. In turn, newcomers strengthen our communities with perspective, new ideas, and rich culture.

Public Space

Public space plays an important role in cultivating a sense of belonging. Our field trips provide opportunities for GAR newcomers and Welcome Groups to explore the city together. Our workshops train volunteers to work safely and effectively with newcomer families. Our public space programs allow Canadians and newcomers to expand social networks and build stronger, more integrated communities.


Together Project is committed to monitoring and supporting its work through accessible, evidence-based research. We partner with universities and organizations both in Canada and abroad to strengthen our analysis and help inform policy.
