S.U.C.C.E.S.S., a non-partisan and not-for-profit charitable organization, was founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1974 for the purpose of promoting the well-being of Canadians and newcomers.
Originally an immigrant settlement service organization, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has since developed into a multi-service, multicultural agency that serves more than 61,000 clients annually. Across our 30 service locations in Canada and offices in Asia, we provide services in newcomer settlement, employment, community development, language training, family and youth counselling, affordable housing and seniors care. Programs are delivered in culturally appropriate ways to best meet the needs of our clients. Through advocacy, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is also recognized as a prominent voice for positive social change.
The majority of our operating funding comes from the three levels of government. Remaining funds come from donations, membership dues, cost recovery programs, corporate sponsorships and other contributions from the S.U.C.C.E.S.S Foundation.
Since 2004, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has been accredited by the Council on Accreditation for its best practices in Board governance, operations management, and standards of service excellence.
