In “New residents’ needs swamp services” Jennifer O’Brien today quotes Barb Schust Lawrence as saying that at the Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre “we are absolutely stretched here” and are “just scraping by.”

Acc. to Ms. O’Brien, the centre is “a hub for immigrants who live in the area” and provides immigrant-geared services for which it currently receives no government funding.

The centre has submitted a funding proposal to Citizenship and Immigration which will hopefully allow it to apply for funding under Ottawa’s Immigrant Settlement and Adaption Program (ISAP).
