A key aspect of TCSBC's resettlement plan is matching mentors to a Tibetan newcomer or family. With the help of TCSBC and settlement service organizations like MOSAIC or Immigration Services Society of B.C., you would be responsible for helping orient the newcomer to the Canadian way of life. You would not be expected to contribute financially to the newcomer's sponsorship unless you choose to donate to TCSBC for that purpose (as discussed above). Rather, you would help them with the practical aspects of settlement including learning how to use the local transportation system, help them make good choices about where to shop thrifty, advise on job search and be a companion to listen and answer questions. TCSBC in addition to the settlement services agencies mentioned above will support you in this endeavor.
The Tibetan Cultural Society of British Columbia (TCS of BC),incorporated in 1981 by Tibetans living in the Greater Vancouver region as a non-sectarian and charitable organization under the B.C. Societies Act.
