Who is it for?
New to Canada Youth Club (NCYC) is a program for youth who have recently moved to Canada. It provides a positive space for teens new to Canada to make friends and develop social groups in an educational and dynamic cultural environment. Using the ROM's galleries and learning labs, participants will be introduced to the rich natural and cultural history of Canada, and the multicultural identity of Canadians.

Workshop 2: Toronto Tapestry
Discover Toronto’s tapestry of multiculturalism. Get to know your new neighbours as you explore some of the many cultures that make up the Canadian landscape today and through history.
