 In recent years Big Brothers Big Sisters has been particularly focused on mentoring Canada’s increasingly diverse communities, including newcomer youth. In 2013, Citizenship and Immigration Canada entered into a three year partnership contributing one million five hundred and eighty thousand dollars to assist Big Brothers Big Sisters in providing mentoring services to newcomer youth. As a result of this funding, five Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies are participating in the Connections Project, a program that recognizes the value of connecting newcomer youth to Canadian mentors, with the goal of supporting the settlement process through mentoring relationships.
