This year our committee has decided to form a forum for New Comers Guidance Cell.
This is to welcome and assist the new immigrants and family who comes in Hamilton and surrounding areas with their process of settling in Canada and also help to integrate to other Malayalee Community.
The main objective is to welcome the new comers with open hearts and open doors to Hamilton Malayalee Samajam.
We are planning the following services for the new comers:
--Introduce them to other members of our samajam either by personnel invitation by the members or by official invitation either through emails, face book , website etc.
--Volunteer service from different professionals/trades to guide them in their professions.
--Rides to attend Samajam programs or for immediate appointments for families with small children or seniors.
--Assistance with job search & resume writing
--Providing information about obtaining goverment documents such as SIN card, OHIP, drivers license etc.
The new immigrants guidance cell is planning to put together a 'welcome kit' which will be given to all the new Comer family.
As a Samajam we like to form a resource of people who can volunteer their time and talents to achieve these goals. Since our samajam is blessed with members who are specialized in varous trades and professions, the new comers could benefit from our collective knowledge and experience, if we can co-ordinate our efforts. Members willing to be a part of this resource pool are invited to contact the New Immigrant Guidance cell members:
