Here at CFN we see community building as working towards a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfill dreams and participate fully as citizens. In the end, the Centre’s promise to the community is this: by welcoming newcomers and supporting them to settle and integrate, by working collaboratively and in partnership, with a workplace culture that is founded on respect, co-operation and trust, we are making a positive difference in the lives of all Calgarians.
