HISTORY

The Portuguese Interagency Network was founded in 1978 by a group of Portuguese-Canadian social 
service workers. They recognized the need for action in the areas of research, community development 
and public education within the Portuguese-Canadian community.

Over the years, PIN has produced several studies, audio-visual materials and reports on the community. 
It has also conducted a number of public education campaigns in the areas of health, adult education, 
literacy, sexual assault and skills training.

PIN has played a key role in the development of organizations such as:

 
  • Kensington Clinic
  • Portuguese Mental Health Clinic
  • Downtown Employment Services
  • Portuguese Family Crisis Centre
  • Access Alliance Multicultural Centre
  • The Bradford Immigrant Community Services
  • Portuguese-Canadian National Congress
