JIAS supports diverse newcomers from around the world. JIAS is inclusive, LGBTQ+ friendly, and proud to serve all newcomers regardless of faith or country of origin.
JIAS Toronto became a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) with the federal government in 2014. We remain the only Jewish SAH in Canada.
The dedication of our volunteers is one of the greatest strengths of JIAS. Volunteers are set up for success and ensured a meaningful experience through extensive volunteer training.
