LUSO making a difference

unique individuals supported by LUSO to integrate into our community.

Fatima was confused and overwhelmed when her daughter's application for Canadian Citizenship was denied. Fortunately, she was able to connect to the NSP Counsellor at LUSO. The Counsellor went through the returned application with Fatima and guided her in the process. A month later, she came back to LUSO to thank us. Her daughter's application had been approved!

"I'm so happy my daughter will be a Canadian Citizen!"
