About Us

Since 1978, Tesoc has been helping thousands of newcomers annually to ensure they are smoothly integrated into the Canadian society. Our dedicated staff continue to provide exceptional services to meet the growing needs of newcomers and immigrants.

Who We Are

Tesoc was registered in 1978 as a non-profit organization under the Ontario Corporations Act. Since its inception, it has been serving the community fulfilling its mandate of serving immigrants in their settlement and adaptation into Canada.

The organization is governed by a BOARD OF DIRECTORS, consisting of 13 members of the community. These Directors are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. There are about 40 staff members to serve the community under its various programs. In addition, more than 30 volunteers also help the organization run its various programs and activities.

In its attempts to serve the community in all possible areas, the organization is aided by the funds provided by Federal and Municipal governments. The organization’s primary funders are Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Government of Canada and City of Toronto. On its own, the organization provides SERVICES and conducts activities like workshops and seminars through fundraising and partnerships with other community agencies.
