The Welcome Collective is one of many organizations dedicated to supporting refugees coming to Montreal. They provide essential services such as job and financial support, and also provides welcome packages with new essential home items and necessary clothing according to the current season. This past Monday, representatives from The Welcome Collective gave a presentation to our Elementary School students about their organizations. The students had the opportunity to meet two refugees who work with the collective and learned more about their journeys to Montreal.
