It is often said that challenging times can bring out the best in people. 

During the last few weeks, the staff and volunteers at Immigrant Service Guelph-Wellington have certainly stepped up to the plate and put their best foot forward during a global pandemic − a crisis that no one ever imagined would have such an impact on how we work and how we engage with the people we serve.

ISGW Online Learning Classes

We are excited to announce new online community programs.

These programs have been developed to keep us engaged and connected while practising the physical distancing that is necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us via Zoom between Monday, April 6 and Friday, May 29 for classes in cooking, Bollywood dance and computers. Several English Conversation Circles are also being offered. DOWNLOAD FLYER for details.

ISGW Message About Office Closure

Dear Clients,

To support Canada's efforts to reduce the chance of spreading the COVID-19 infection we have made the necessary decision to close the office entirely. All staff are expected to work from home.

Effective March 20, 2020, ISGW will be CLOSED  to the general public and staff will be working at home to serve you the best we can.

Coronavirus Information for ISGW Clients

Everyone should continue to think ahead about the actions that they can take to stay healthy and prevent the spread of any illness, espectially respiratory infections.

Stay home if you are sick. Encourage those who you know are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms.

Social distancing — staying at least six feet away from other and cleaning your hands after touching shared surfaces like door handles or handrails.
