Everyone is welcome to come.
The FCJ Refugee centre has a upcoming event to help raise funds to support youth education. As some of you may or may not know about the hardship non-status individuals face when it comes to getting education here in Canada- either they are banned from getting studies or charged international fees for tuition which is triple the amout that which a Canadian citizen would pay. It is for this reason we hold this event to help those who have to pay those fees. Please come out and support the youth, by purchasing hand-made art pieces, textile designs, drawings, paintings and baked goods created by youths. Some beautiful and heartfelt talents will be revealed
