Immigrant Welcome Centre

 

The Immigrant Welcome Centre is run by the Multicultural & Immigrant Services Association of North Vancouver Island (MISA), which is a registered not-for-profit society. A not-for-profit society does not belong to the government. It is a legal entity that is registered under the provincial or federal Societies Act. The main difference between a for-profit and a not-for-profit organization is the ability to distribute profits. In a not-for-profit, any profit must be retained within the organization and cannot be distributed to its members.
