Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services gets $495,000 Trillium grant to expand and consolidate

A formerly Polish and now universal immigrant assistance agency has received almost $500,000 to expand their Etobicoke offices.

The 18-year-old Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services will use the $495,000 Trillium grant to built a third floor on its centre at 3363 Bloor Street West, as well as make it more accessible.

"The site is a small site," says director of programs and services Nadia Sokhan, "so we're trying to expand the location so we can run more programming."

One of the conditions of the grant is that the agency match the funds with its own fundraising. Sokhan figures they'll have done this and will be able to begin work in about a year.
