How Our Funders Fuel Our Mission

The financial support from our funders drives our ability to develop and deliver effective and innovative programs and services that support the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees in our communities. Their diverse contributions constitute an investment in our vision of an inclusive and prosperous society where all newcomers can reach their potential. The steadfast support of our funders fuels our mission, enabling us to make a real difference in the lives of those we serve.  

While funding from the federal, provincial and municipal governments aligns us with broader societal goals, contributions from community groups and corporate sponsors expand the reach and impact of our programs. This synergy amplifies our capacity to serve effectively, making every dollar a step towards a newcomer’s successful new beginning in Calgary and beyond.

Many Lives Changed

CCIS (Calgary Catholic Immigration Society) is a non-profit organization which provides settlement and integration services to all immigrants and refugees in Southern Alberta.

Since our inception in 1981, we have been a community leader with solid experience in the design and delivery of comprehensive services for our newest neighbours. We deliver these services through a dynamic multi-cultural, multi-denominational and multi-disciplinary team of professionals, who collectively speak over 60 languages.

In partnership, we empower immigrants and refugees to successfully settle and integrate in our communities.

An inclusive society where immigrants and refugees can reach their full potential.

CCIS believes:

  • In an environment which enhances self-esteem and respect for all.

  • That each individual is unique and of value.

  • That we all have a responsibility to build a healthy community.

  • In a holistic approach in working with individuals and community.

  • In constant attention, sensitivity and flexibility throughout the ongoing process of relationship building.

  • In ethical practices.

  • In volunteerism.

  • In innovation and creativity.

People in cities around the world have taken a united stand against police brutality and systemic racism. It is heartening to hear this collective call to end the policies and practices, entrenched in our institutions, that result in the exclusion and oppression of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community.   

It is important for each of us to remember that the racism and oppression we see in our justice systems and police forces are symbolic of the prejudices that exist in our society as a whole. We must therefore work together to eradicate racism, not only from our institutions, but from every aspect of our communities.

The responsibility lies with each of us to identify, address and prevent instances of racial discrimination, and prejudiced attitudes and behaviours. By addressing both individual and systemic racism, we can set an example for our children, and move closer to a society that upholds justice, equality, and respect for all.

CCIS believes that every person is unique, of value, and deserving of equality and respect. We also believe in working together to build healthy communities. Our organization’s vision is a society wherein immigrants and refugees, and all people, can reach their full potential. This vision can only be achieved if we collectively combat racism in all its forms and shapes.

CCIS continues to take an active role in standing against individual and systemic racism and oppression, and we wish to express our solidarity with those in our city, and around the world, who are working together for a better tomorrow.
