Help refugees and vulnerable immigrants make Canada home with your tea or coffee purchase
December 6-18, 2022
A portion of each purchase will be donated to MNLCT.
Scale Without Borders is a startup bringing together the entire immigrant tech community — key business leaders, startup leaders, government, and nonprofits — to support, celebrate, and hire the brightest immigrants in tech.
Our C-Women program students participated in the inspiring Immigrants in Tech Summit 2022 and enjoyed networking opportunities, engaging speeches, and fun activities. It was a wonderful experience they plan to repeat in the future!
