magma re-envisioned: one year later

Over one year ago, MAGMA invited the community to its Re-Envisioned event where the organization shared its vision and strategy for the Path Forward for better and expanded settlement services with the key objective of supporting newcomers as they embark on their journey towards a new life in our region. The organization renewed its commitment to newcomer integration and retention in the region building on an exceptional and rich four-decade long history of welcoming newcomers and setting them up for success, and the invaluable partnerships and support from and within the community.
