Who We Are
Canadian Pakistani Support Group Association (CPSG) is a registered charitable organization BN # 703421511RR0001. This is an association of the visionary Canadian Pakistani diaspora in Calgary. The great drive of support, building resilience and creating opportunities for needy immigrant and refugee families started with small scale direct support. Our small initiatives later became a strong movement and recognition for our impact groups as a trusted forum for all in need specifically women, children, and youth. Since our humble start in 2017, we are serving our clients through diversified programs and activities.
CPSG has a strong conviction that humans are gifted with unlimited and unique talents. All scales of manmade and natural vulnerabilities affect the performance, economic and social capabilities. This leads to deepening effects on generations. However, this can be reduced by creating a succeeding environment for equality and equity. CPSG has positioned its interventions in Calgary to create an enabling environment to fight against all the obstacles of prosperity and harmony for people in need specifically women, children, and youth.
