CHAI Immigrant Centre is a charitable non-profit organization focused on helping newcomers integrate into Canadian society.


Creating and Developing Relationships with Newcomers


“CHAI” is an informal acronym for Christians Helping All Immigrants. As a Christian based organization, CHAI exists to create connections, make friends with newcomers, and assist them with the adjustment to life in Canada during the first months and years of settlement.

At CHAI newcomers and Manitobans take the time to get to know each other’s needs and strengths, answer questions, and become friends. This approach seeks to balance the needs of newcomers in settlement with the recognition that newcomers have many gifts to give our volunteers and their communities.
