Helping international students thrive in Thunder Bay.



Assisting International Students Together (ASSIST) is a new, not-for-profit organization that will provide support and funding for international students. We want to help them complete their studies with confidence and security. Our initial funding program will focus on temporary relief to ensure that a bill or rent payment doesn’t become a barrier to their education.

Founded in 2020, our mission is to support international students in Thunder Bay by providing temporary financial relief and scholarships; gathering knowledge and information useful for living here; and hosting events that promote a sense of belonging.
