Our mission is to come alongside new immigrants and refugees, offering them the support they need to transition smoothly to their new life in Canada. The New Canadian Friendship Centre is a ministry of Centre Street Church. It currently operates out of the Encompass Partnerships location in NE Calgary.
No immigration restrictions – all are welcome!
"NCFC staff listen to me and help me. Moreover, staff, volunteers and other NCFC clients become my friends and part of my family. My child is growing up in NCFC where he gets great care and love of aunties and grandmas and grandpas."
"NCFC has not only given me the opportunity to learn English, but it has also given me generosity, affection, words of encouragement and prayers for my well-being."
"NCFC helps me not only for my knowledge about the language but also, for my better life here in Canada. I got many friends who help me to understand others' cultures."
"NCFC has helped me in many ways. They teach me English, to integrate in the community and I made a lot of friends. And when I’m facing a problem they try to guide me and help me out."
"NCFC is your family when you don’t have family. I am grateful the staff gives not only English lessons, they give love, help, good friends."
