With our mission to serve those in need and share God’s Love, our team is here to assist international students with a dream to pursue their studies and settle here in this beautiful country, specifically in the Durham Region. This team includes young adults who are from Canada, Brazil, US, India, China, Africa & many more who are willing to assist the international students in any possible way. Our heart is simply to help, therefore, all services are free of charge.

 

Arrival Services – Airport Pick-up

 We arrange for free airport pick-ups for the international students who arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport. We make sure they reach their campus safely. Our team members have completed their police checks and have a valid Drivers Licence.

Newcomers Welcome Dinner

 We welcome the students with a welcome pack & newcomers’ dinner. We make them feel at home and get them connected with the young adults. This will be the most valuable time for them to get to know about the culture, the food and many more. 

Orientation Session

We organize an orientation session where we give the students general important information on Canada Do’s and Dont’s. An Immigration Attorney will give them an overview on mandatory rules and regulations that must be followed as a student pertaining to the part time work. He will also be available to answer any questions about future immigration.

Banking Assistance

We assist the students to find their bank and support them for their initial procedures. Support them if they have problem in understanding the language or if any other assistance required.

Cell Phone Provider

Do you need assistance to get a local cell number? We can help and guide you to various provider stores like Bell, Rogers and Telus which are major cell phone companies across Canada. Some are with better price-per-feature rates like Fido, Koodo, and Virgin Mobile.

 Assistance in Canadian Resume

  We help international students to redraft their resume to Canadian standard resume. Our HR professional will assist them and give them inputs in job search. They will also be given information on certain certifications that are mandatory for jobs. 

Oshawa Tour

We arrange for a tour within Oshawa -the place where the student will be living for few years. We take them to Oshawa mall, parks, Coffee shops, Cineplex, Train station and downtown area. Give them few landmarks and bus stations to enable them to have a basic knowledge about Oshawa.
