The Newcomer Toolkit – Virtual Support Showcase
What you’ll learn
On March 17 from 6 pm – 8 pm (EST), join The Newcomer Toolkit’s Virtual Support Showcase, where you will meet newcomer support providers from across Ottawa.
Networking helps you meet, build relationships, and exchange ideas with people, with the goal of helping each other in business or work. It can be intimidating, especially if you’re doing it in a new country — and during a pandemic, which has changed where and how people network to a new, online setting.
That’s why we worked with partners across Ottawa to create this Virtual Support Showcase, to make it easy for newcomers like you to meet with the right people and organizations that can help you grow your business or career.
This is your chance to ask them questions and build lasting relationships with local business and community leaders.
