A weekend camping event that brings together newcomers to the country and business owners is almost two weeks away. Immigration Resource Network Economic Development agent Marie-Josee Tremblay says registration is now available through Eventbrite for either day sessions or the full weekend.
“If you choose the weekend pass, please note that you will have an area to camp out for your tents,” she said. “We do want to make sure that everyone brings their camping equipment.”
Tremblay she’s expecting about 150 newcomers from all across the north.
“We do have a bus that is going to be coming down from Sudbury from the Settlement Services, the Centre de Sante,” she said. “They’ll be stopping by Timmins to pick-up some more clientele from the settlement services and College Boreal in Timmins.”
