In the early 1980s, a small group of community activists gathered together and determined that the ‘Indo Canadian’ community needed to create opportunities for its seniors to meet regularly. In 1985 the ‘India Rainbow Club of Peel’ was incorporated. As the community became more involved, it was decided that the organization should broaden its appeal – and became India Rainbow Community Services of Peel, with a formal business address and a few programs for seniors.
Fast forward three decades and the agency has grown to six locations, has a staff of over 100, and a renewed commitment to serve people of all backgrounds in a way that is culturally responsive and adheres to the highest standards of service.
