About Us

Catholic Crosscultural Services (CCS) is a national non-profit organization based in the Greater Toronto Area. CCS aims to empower immigrants and refugees of all religions, ethnicities, countries of origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, or political affiliation to develop the skills and acquire the necessary knowledge to settle, integrate and succeed in Canada.    

Founded in 1954, CCS believes in the power of diversity and inclusion to foster change, nurture progress and move society forward. Newcomers need linguistically appropriate assistance and culturally sensitive support. Thus, CCS delivers programs and services in thirty languages to address these gaps, assisting clients to confidently navigate the labour market, school and health care system.  

We have eight locations across Scarborough, Mississauga and Brampton, and collaborate with numerous partners and settlement and social services sector organizations throughout the Greater Toronto Area.  

Our Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) works with private sponsors across Canada to assist them in successfully sponsoring refugees through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program. 

Our Mission 

CCS provides services that assist in the settlement and integration of immigrants and refugees. 

Our Vision

Create a Canada where newcomers thrive and feel at home.

Guiding Principles 

  • All people are treated with dignity, respect, understanding and without discrimination 
  • Our programs and services are guided by the teachings of Catholic Social Justice
