This brings us to the CFN swirl. The image represents an accessible place of security and safety. a harbour, a sheltered centre, approached through a wide and protected passage, It incorporates ideas of journey, destination, and convergence - experiences of newcomers to Canada. The symbol also suggests a sprouting seed, an unfolding of new growth, as newcomers grow new roots and establish a home in Canada. The round and fluid rendering of the logo also captures the sense of human energy and movement that characterises the Centre. It is, without a doubt, a flourishing hub of activity.
The CFN swirl thus represents our mission to support newcomers and the receiving community in becoming a diverse, united community, through services and initiatives that create conditions of success for newcomers and that foster a welcoming environment in Calgary. Most of all it symbolizes what the Calgary we imagine - a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfil dreams and participate fully as citizens.
