We Connect Locals to International People
What we do
The Connection is an Intercultural association operating in Medicine Hat. Year-round our social events and inclusion programs provide Canadians and international people (newcomers) a platform to meet and build meaningful relationships. Our local volunteers provide English-language-learners with the opportunity to learn the English language through our mentoring program and informal events.
Who we serve
Our events and programs are open to all interested in connecting and learning from our local and international participants. Whether you are a local person, immigrant, international student, temporary foreign worker, a short-term visitor to Canada or anyone new to town. Let’s get you connected.
For 17 years, The Connection has supported locals and newcomers to engage in meaningful relationships that have created unity. Many have built confidence and stayed locally, and some moved to other communities to replicate Medicine Hat’s impact on their lives.
Are you looking for a place to connect, or would you like to volunteer for an event? Take a look and let us know if you can join.
