MISSION AND VISION
Levant supports refugees as they flee crisis. Our primary mission is to enable refugee sponsorship initiatives. We help bring the vulnerable to safety in Canada.
Levant is also dedicated to supporting refugees' empowered integration into Canadian life through arts and culture. Through the arts, Levant promotes intercultural dialogue and belonging.
Levant operates as a Special Agreement Holder (SAH) with the Canadian government. This allows us to sponsor a certain number of refugees every year into our Kitchener community. Our ongoing arts and culture programs help encourage integration and exchange between newcomers and established Canadians. They also support pride in the newcomers home cultures.
Our vision is a welcoming, discrimination-free Kitchener-Waterloo region. The future we are building includes empowered inter-cultural exchange.
