S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Celebrates 25 Years of Welcoming Newcomers at YVR through the Community Airport Newcomers Network

SUCCESS-CANN-YVR--Cake-Cutting
Vancouver, BC – The Community Airport Newcomers Network (CANN), operated by S.U.C.C.E.S.S., celebrated two remarkable milestones today: 25 years of welcoming immigrants and refugees at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and a cumulative total of more than one million newcomers served since the program’s inception. A celebration was held at Vancouver International Airport to mark the occasion.

“Congratulations on marking the 25th anniversary of the Community Airport Newcomers Network at Vancouver International Airport,” said the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. “The CANN program plays a central role in welcoming newcomers to Canada. Last year alone, more than 31,000 newcomers were served by CANN in over 20 languages. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is proud of the success of the program and the work they do to make Canada a better place.”

CANN is often the first point of contact for immigrants and refugees arriving at YVR. Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the program refers newcomers to services at over 200 settlement partner organizations across the country, ensuring they are connected to key settlement resources at their final destinations. In 2016, as part of the Syrian Initiative, CANN helped to welcome more than 3,000 Syrian refugees at YVR.

“S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is very proud as the provider of the Community Airport Newcomers Network at YVR,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. “The program assists almost all newcomers arriving at YVR, serving approximately 40,000 people each year. I’d like to thank Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada believing in this program to support the new arrivals to Canada.”

CANN’s port-of-entry services at Vancouver International Airport are delivered through two streams: the Settlement Program, which serves all categories of newcomers, and the Resettlement Assistance Program, which serves government-assisted refugees, privately sponsored refugees and blended visa office-referred refugees.

“I would like to offer CANN a heartfelt thank you for their dedication over the last 25 years at YVR. We have enjoyed many great partnerships with them over the years,” said Reg Krake, Director of Customer Care, Vancouver Airport Authority. “Looking forward, we will continue to work with CANN to help newcomers start their new journeys in Canada.”  

At the celebration event, Pamela Zenda, a former Resettlement Assistance Program client, and Chielo Monderondo, a former Settlement Program client, shared their experience of receiving services from CANN. Both credited the program for helping them to feel more prepared and at ease for their new life in Canada.

Officially Opens in Richmond

Richmond, BC – Supporters, partners and donors celebrated the official grand opening of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Jackson Lam Adult Day Centre today. The centre is made possible by a generous $300,000 donation from Mrs. Ping Mah and the Lam family, following the selection of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Multi-Level Care Society (MLC) by Vancouver Coastal Health as the successful proponent to operate a new adult day program for seniors in Richmond in January 2017.  

“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Jackson Lam Adult Day Centre with so many of the people who helped to make it a reality,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. “The 25 spaces available at this centre will help to enrich the lives of seniors in Richmond, helping them to stay active and connected to the community. I would like to thank Vancouver Coastal Health for its strong support and our donors Mrs. Ping Mah and the Lam family for their generosity.”

“My family and I are really thrilled with the official opening of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Jackson Lam Adult Day Centre, as a lot of seniors and their families can benefit from the services and support of this program,” said Ping Mah, daughter of Jackson Lam.

The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Jackson Lam Adult Day Centre is co-located on the site of Austin Harris Residence, one of the assisted living programs under the auspices of MLC. The centre can accommodate 25 seniors per day, Monday to Friday, and began to receive clients on June 12, 2017.

Adult day programs are designed for older adults who may have complex physical and/or cognitive challenges or are living with chronic illnesses. The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Jackson Lam Adult Day Centre is dedicated to providing quality day health services to seniors through integrated programs, and bridging seniors with the community. The program plays a key role in allowing clients to continue living at home as long as possible, optimizing their physical, psycho-social and emotional functioning, and lowering their rate of hospitalization.
