In 2018 I want to honour our roots and help support Canadian newcomers with an initiative we call
Starting this month, and for the balance of 2018, we’re donating safety footwear to newcomers who have worked through COSTI.org to successfully secure their first job in Canada. It’s a small gesture but one I hope helps them be more comfortable and safe on the job.
COSTI has done important work in the GTA for far longer than Mister Safety Shoes has been around, providing language training, social services, refugee settlement and employment services to newcomers. I encourage you to find out more about them here costi.org.
