COSTI - A History in Progress

    COSTI Immigrant Services to host book launch event

    TORONTO, March 20 /CNW/ - COSTI Immigrant Services is pleased to invite
all media to a cocktail reception launching COSTI - A History in Progress, a
book publication of the organization's history chronicling more than 50 years
of service to the community.
    COSTI's evolution into one of Canada's largest community-based
multicultural organizations can be seen as a mirror image of Canada's own
evolutionary course. As Canada changed over the years, so too did COSTI, with
each successive wave of immigration. "COSTI embraces the ideals of this
country", says author Adriana Suppa. "In researching, interviewing and
documenting the struggles of newcomers, I have gained a greater respect and
appreciation for the organization and its clients. The services COSTI provides
are invaluable."
    The book tells the story of the tireless and selfless efforts of many
volunteers and staff, whose roles were pivotal to the success of the
organization. It is broken down by themes such as the founding of COSTI; the
establishment of a Women's Centre; the organization's involvement with the
United Way, the Toronto Chinese Community Services Association, and the
African Canadian Social Development Council; as well as more recent obstacles
faced by internationally trained professionals and tradespeople.
    This event is open to media and invited guests only. Expected guests
include elected officials, community leaders, and former volunteers and
clients interviewed for the publication. The book will be available on-site.
