The Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre is the lead partner for the Pickering Welcome Centre.
DRUHC embraces the objectives of the Durham Welcome Centres in both Pickering and Ajax – to guide and support newcomers through the maze of settlement information and resources in the Durham Region by providing one-stop services.
The Welcome Centre utilizes a collaborative framework in which core services and Associate Partners provide programming, information, services and resources designed to meet the needs of new immigrants.
Along with several partners, DRUHC participated in a wonderful new initiative with the Durham Welcome Centres – a series of workshops designed to offer knowledge to newcomers regarding “Workers Rights and Responsibilities”.
The second part of the series will take place in 2015. Contact the Welcome Centre for more information.
