About NewComer Organizations Network (NCON)

Are you employed by an organization that assists Newcomers to Canada to settle in Peel or Halton? If so there is a networking group established just for you!

The Newcomer Organizations Network (NCON) is a networking group for those who work with Newcomers to Canada in all aspects of their settlement. The group was founded by the Peel Halton Workforce Development Group (formerly Peel Halton Dufferin Training Board), after identifying the need for such a group.

Along with a committee comprised of representatives of those organizations that serve the interests of new Canadians, we have developed that need into a thriving group. Its mission is to inform, educate, and discuss programs, issues, funding opportunities and concerns pertaining to newcomers in the Peel Halton area. To achieve this, the group meets quarterly for breakfast networking meetings held on the first Thursday of the month in October, January, April and July from 9:00 am to 11:30 am.

NCON Meetings are your opportunity to:

  • Network with people from other organizations that serve the interests of newcomers
  • Create partnerships with other members or their agencies
  • Listen to keynote speakers who are selected to serve your interests
  • Showcase your agency to other members
  • Learn about new programs, initiatives and opportunities

NCON members are expected to attend at least two of our meetings each year and act as representatives of their employers at those meetings.

"NCON was cited as a source of best practices in a 2015 document titled Community Collaborative Approaches to Job Development. In a table headed Innovative Practices Spotlight on page 31, Peel Halton Workforce Development Group is listed twice as an example of best practices."

If you would like more information about NCON, please tell us which newcomer serving organization in Peel or Halton you belong to and your position there. We will inform you whether you meet the criteria for membership. Please email:info@peelhaltonworkforce.com or call 905-306- 9588.
