The resource centre provides vital services including information services, learning and networking opportunities as well as life coaching sessions.
Located in the Westgate Shopping Centre at 1309 Carling Avenue, Maidan Market's mission and vision is to make a difference in lives of Ukrainians who are newcomers to Canada and help them integrate into larger community. Svitlana Maksiuta, Ukrainian Canadian Congress Ottawa Settlement Manager, was the guest speaker at the Stittsville Rotary meeting on May 02, 2023. Having joined Maidan Market when it was established in May 2022 with the support of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Ottawa Branch, she offered the personal insight of a newcomer to Canada and she described the operation of the resource centre.
Maidan Market provides a centralized location for newcomers to access information and resources about housing, employment, language classes, legal services, and other essential resources. The educational aspects of the centre assist in the development of new skills, thereby improving the chances of finding employment. Participation in the activities connects people, reducing feelings of isolation and providing opportunities for socialization and networking. For more information check the website:
