How TNO helps

TNO works with refugee families to provide them with financial assistance, housing support, and health services. As a result, many have already improved their English, found employment, and are starting to make friends and connections with other newcomers. Your generous donation means we can continue our mission in ensuring every refugee receives the support they need as they settle into their new Canadian home.

  • Your donation has the power to change their world. Not only does it help TNO offer services to support people seeking refugee protection because of persecution, but it also helps newcomers to become engaged and participating members of the Toronto community. Whether it be a one-time gift or a monthly donation, every contribution counts.
  • TNO offers many volunteer opportunities, whether you have one hour or more of time to donate. Help us in our mission to uplift a community in need by working with newcomers as a tutor, mentor, or session facilitator.
  • “When we arrived, we were given everything we needed for daily life, [...] we were promptly issued OHIP cards, social insurance numbers, bank accounts, language training and schooling for the children, who missed years of education during the war."

  • "TNO bridges a gap that new immigrants have, makes one feel at home and gives a sense of community and support."
