Effective September 8, 2021, Indus requires proof of vaccination via paper or PDF vaccine receipt or an enhanced digital vaccine receipt that features a QR code (upon implementation by the Province of Ontario) and another piece of photo identification, such as a driver’s licence or health card in order to access in-person services. Clients who are unable to provide proof of vaccination will only be provided phone or virtual services by appointment only.

Please review our COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.

Starting a new life in Canada can be challenging, Indus is here to help with your transition.  Our program will match you with a local volunteer mentor who will help you learn more about your community and the available resources. Your mentor will help you learn about banking services, transit, education, community services and more.

If you are a newcomer who has been in Canada for less than three years, this is the program for you.

The program is available free of cost in Mississauga, Brampton & Oakville.
