The Pas Immigrant Services are hosting a welcoming week.
Darshita Barekx with The Pas Immigrant Services tells us what welcoming week is:
"The Welcoming Week is an annual opportunity to recognize and celebrate the people, place and values that help everyone feel welcome and give them a sense of belonging in their local community no matter where they come from."
Welcoming Week started on Friday and will continue over the week with programs running to encourage newcomers to the community to get involved.
This evening a newcomers welcoming event will be happening at The Pas Immigrant Services building on Fischer Avenue. A family games night will be running on Wednesday night.
On Thursday, an outdoor Zoomba event will be happening outside of the Wellness Center.
Friday will see a children’s talent show at The Pas Regional Library.
And on Saturday the event will wrap up with a nature walk on the Rosy Mayne Trail.
There will also be a chance to win prizes on their Facebook page, so follow The Pas Immigrant Service online.
