YOUTH PROGRAM
SENIOR PROGRAM
CII's seniors program exists to inform adults over the age of 55 of available services, programs, and resources that provide economic, social, and emotional support. A primary means by which this is achieved is through cross-cultural peer support groups, where seniors from the mainstream community mentor seniors from the immigrant African diaspora community. The goal of bringing these two groups together is to aid immigrants. 
 
Jump Start's current initiative, Education to Facilitate Integration (EFI), works with youth from diverse cultural backgrounds and educators to foster cross-cultural understanding and cooperation. The point of engagement will be a series of interactive workshops for both students and teachers. Along with these workshops, a compilation of resources (books, videos, speakers, agencies, contacts) related to African culture, are available for educators upon request.
HOW DO WE HELP ?

CIAI has made a significant difference in the lives of its community members. From advocating for families in citizenship applications, to forming seniors social groups to reduce social isolation, the CIAI recognizes its unique role in advancing the interests of its members.
Services offered by the CIAI are widespread and comprehensive. Examples include services relating to the development of job-ready skills, access to translation services, and access to information on integration, the labor market, education, housing, the law, community resources, translation services, & Canadian culture.

The CIAI is also proud of the role it plays within the local African diaspora community. In addition to functioning as a resource centre, the CIIA’s New Westminster office serves as a centralized hub for members of the African diaspora to associate, build community, and mutually support one another.
The CIAI is funded primarily through Service Canada, HRSDC, Heritage Canada, and through various private funders.
