Our Client’s Testimonials

Thank you for your help. I needed help updating my resume, within two days I contacted their office, and my resume was ready to go. I was surprised by how fast they were able to get it done, even when I didn’t pay for their service. Thank you very much!


I would like to thank Afro-Canadian Development for helping me get a job when I was stranded all alone. With employment support, I am now able to support myself and live independently in this new land of opportunities.

Become a Volunteer

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.

Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.
