About this project

SCOPE - Social and Civic Opportunities; Pathways to Equity provides racialized newcomers a voice by diversifying governing bodies. The main goal of the project is to foster equitable social and civic engagement opportunities for racialized newcomers.

Through SCOPE, participants will have the opportunity to attend trainings, forums and have access to a Peer-led platform where they can connect, share, inform and learn ways to meaningfully participate in the community. MOSAIC will be engaging organizations that are interested in having immigrant and refugee lived experience at their decision-making tables and creating opportunities for placements on boards that match participant’s interests.

In 2022, the project will accept 2 cohorts with 30 participants each. The first cohort will start by the end of February, 2022. Training will be organized every second Saturday for a 4 month period.

The project is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada.
