Become a member and enter the draw for a fantastic Canada Day gift basket!

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a membership drive for the Immigrant Welcome Centre (MISA) during the months of May and June 2024, in celebration of Canada Day. As part of this drive, all current and new members will be eligible to enter a draw for a fantastic Canada Day gift basket, which will take place on June 20th.


But what does being a member entail? Members play a vital role in maintaining our organization’s status as a society and supporting our work. They also have the opportunity to elect the Board of Directors, whose role is to oversee MISA’s financial and operational management, as well as plan for the organization’s long-term strategic goals.


“We tend to measure immigration year-over-year, looking at the numbers and strategies first. That approach can box people in the silos of asylum seeker, refugee or economic immigrant. The reality is that a newcomer’s potential is far greater than the sum of their current circumstances. The benefits of immigration should really be measured in generations. A child arriving in Canada today could be tomorrow’s inventor, athlete, nurse, entrepreneur—or volunteer who supports and inspires the immigrants who come after.” The Honourable Marc Miller Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship


Join our organization and make a difference in your community by becoming an Immigrant Welcome Centre (MISA) member or renewing your membership before June 20th. All members in good standing will be entered into a draw for a Canada Day gift basket.

Yearly memberships start at $10 for individuals, $20 for families, $30 for non-profit organizations.
