Strike Group believes everyone has a right to education, and are committed to providing people in historically underrepresented groups with financial aid.
Did you know that Canada has one of the highest naturalization rates in the world? About 85% of newcomers become citizens! Immigration is a welcome and necessary part of growing Canada’s economy and it helps to ensure there are qualified workers to fill available jobs. Strike supports immigrants and welcomes this opportunity to give back to individuals that are stimulating innovation and helping to develop important cross-cultural competencies.
