IRCOM’s Family-to-Family Program is an opportunity for the whole family to get involved in the Winnipeg community. Families who are well-established in Canadian culture are paired with families who are new to Canada for an opportunity to learn and grow together.

Family-to-Family runs from May to August each year. Once paired up, families meet together 4 times over the summer for relaxed socializing and fun outings. It’s a great way to enjoy all the fun events and activities that a summer in Winnipeg has to offer!

Volunteer families don’t necessarily need to have previous experience working with newcomers but rather a willingness to learn about a new culture and an interest in sharing experiences with another family.

Families with children are especially encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted year-round to ensure a spot in the program.

Our 2017 program is now full. Thanks to all who applied. The application form has been temporarily removed as we already have a waitlist for the 2018 program. Please check back in March to see if it has been reactivated.
