Vision Statement:

Newcomer fully participating and integrating in Canadian life and society.


Mission Statement:

To help newcomers of all cultural backgrounds integrate successfully into Canadian society.



The Multicultural Helping House Society Settlement/ Employment Training Center is a registered non-profit society and charitable organization dedicated to serving the needs of newcomers to Canada.  In its 20-year history, the MHHS has provided assistance to thousands of new immigrants in addressing their needs from settlement, employment, social services, skills enhancement, respite housing, legal assistance, and education services.


Through the years, the society has been well-known for its ability to provide immediate assistance to individuals in crisis and those who are disadvantaged either due to language, employment or social isolation.


Duly recognized and supported by the three levels of government – Federal, Provincial, and local – the MHHS provides programs for all immigrants regardless of their background.  It also runs special programs centered on the youth, senior citizens and families.


The MHHS continues to operate based on the virtue of volunteerism, the moving force behind the society’s inception in 1996.  The society’s success is attributed to its ability to collaborate and partner with members of the community, its donors and its volunteers.
