Our Current Services
The multicultural celebration allows people to showcase their culture as their contribution to building our Canadian society. The goal of the multicultural celebration is to celebrate one’s culture in a context of the larger community rather than doing it in isolation or in the context of one’s own people or culture. It is a contribution to building one Canada instead of many Mini-Canada's within our great nation.

Resource Safety Work Program for Oil & Gas Industry
CISS offered successfully two and half
weeks safety work programs for immigrants to equip them to work in the oil and Gas industry.
Matching Immigrants and Canadians
CISS matched immigrant families and Canadian families in a way of
building unity in a multicultural society.
We identified 30 immigrant families and enrolled 30 Canadian families who delivered the hampers that were used as an entry point to starting a friendship between immigrant
families and Canadian families.
English as Second Language Conversation
We taught English to immigrants through a group conversation.
It was shocking to see how much the slow typing speed was a contributing factor for immigrants not getting a job or not maintaining their jobs. With the training, immigrants improved immensely their typing skills and consequently their self-esteem and confidence.
School and Family Liaison
The goal was to support immigrant children and their families as well as the schools on how to best maximize the immigrant children’s success in school.
Helping children who are behind in their schooling to catch up with their grades.
Helping immigrants to see the value of volunteering. We volunteered to clean the parks.
Mentoring is good for everyone. It is even more needed for immigrants who are struggling to adjust to how life is and is done here in Canada.
