Community Impact

For 23 years, GGP has equipped newcomers with the knowledge, skills, and connections to become integrated, thriving community members. Our cross-trained staff and dedicated volunteers help clients adapt to life in Canada easier and faster.

"At GGP, I appreciated all the lessons on Canadian culture, both explicit and implicit. If you learn about cultural norms ahead of time, you will be more successful in your relationships and in your job. It’s simple but very important."
