Benvenuti a Vancouver

The Italian Cultural Centre has a long tradition of welcoming newcomers from Italy and offers its services and assistance to all Italian visitors to Vancouver.  While Il Centro cannot provide unlimited services, we have established a network of partnerships and collaborations designed to provide quality orientation and information for our newcomer community.  Through a series of referrals and information sessions, Il Centro has positioned itself as the “hub” for the Italian community and is committed to work with our partners to meet the needs of our new Italian compatriots.

Il Centro Culturale Italiano ha alle spalle una lunga tradizione di accoglienza per i migranti italiani, e offre servizi e assistenza a tutti gli italiani in visita a Vancouver. Siccome Il Centro non riesce a provvedere servizi illimitati, abbiamo istituito delle collaborazioni per cercare di fornire orientamento e informazioni per la comunità di persone appena arrivate. Attraverso segnalazioni e incontri informativi, Il Centro si è posizionato come fulcro della comunità italiana per soddisfare, insieme ai collaboratori, tutti i bisogni dei nostri compatrioti giunti da poco.
