North Vancouver, BC: The North Shore Multicultural Society is excited to announce it has rebranded as Impact North Shore. This milestone is a significant move for the organization on strengthening its vision toward an inclusive and equitable North Shore.
“After 30 years of serving and responding to the needs of im/migrants and newcomers in both North and West Vancouver as the North Shore Multicultural Society, we are looking forward to continuing this work as Impact North Shore,” says Wendy McCulloch, Executive Director at Impact North Shore. “This rebrand has been a process of honouring where we’ve come from as an organization and finding the name and look that feels like the organization we’ve evolved into over the past 30 years.”
This announcement comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the organization, including:
- Re-launching the Immigrant Service Centre which provides a one-stop location for immigrants and newcomers to access support while settling on the North Shore. These services include settlement, employment, English language, school support as well as specialized services for youth, seniors, families, and women.
- Creation of a Community Innovation team that will focus on work related to service and systems innovations through dialogues, events, special projects, and partnerships that supports increasing equitable spaces and places through collaboration.
