Have a cuppa tea with the Immigrant Welcome Centre

The bi-monthly Tea Party is becoming a popular way to meet people from around the globe

The bi-monthly Tea Party is becoming a popular way to meet people from around the globe, including Britain, Australia and South Africa.

Enjoy complimentary traditional delights, such as delicious scones topped with clotted cream and jam, and take the opportunity to socialize with your fellow immigrants.

The event provides the Immigrant Welcome Centre with an opportunity to gain better understanding of how to effectively tailor its services to English speaking immigrants.

The next Tea Party will be co-hosted by Campbell River’s British Shop, a new locally owned and operated business that imports teas, food, and other goodies from the British Isles.

“I am excited to welcome the Tea Party to my shop, and I look forward to continuing to meet newcomers and long time immigrants in our community,” said Pat Patterson, owner of the British Shop.

The Tea Party will take place at the British Shop at 990c Shoppers Row, tomorrow, Thursday July 25 at 6 p.m.

The Immigrant Welcome Centre serves the Comox Valley, Campbell River and North Island. They provide services to immigrants to help them integrate and settle into Canada.

Over 600 clients have been served in the past year as immigration continues to bring innovative and skilled newcomers to the community.
