About CHAI Immigrant Centre Inc.
The CHAI Immigrant Centre is all about connecting local immigrants with local Canadians. During the crucial and difficult first years of immigration, the CHAI Immigrant Centre is a place where immigrants can find people to connect with as they establish themselves in Manitoba. It is more than a place to meet for "CHAI"- a cup of tea, although that is a regular activity. It is a place where a friendly Manitoban will take the time to develop relationships, answer questions, provide opportunities for conversational English and have fun.
