About Agincourt Community Services Association:

Agincourt Community Services Association was reviewed for an update May 2021, but no new information was found. The following report was written using its 2017 Annual Report.   

Founded in 1970, Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA) works to improve the quality of life in Scarborough, Ontario by supporting youth, new immigrants, young mothers, and the underprivileged. The charity operates five locations, primarily serving the neighbourhoods of Agincourt, Dorset Park, Steeles, and L’Amoreaux. Each ACSA location hosts a different combination of programs and services. The charity does not provide a breakdown of its spending on its programs.

The main site helps the poor and homeless through drop-in services, housing support, and providing mailboxes. Support is available for people struggling with addiction. The charity also reaches out to local sex workers to prevent the spread of HIV and STIs through regular testing. Individuals with annual income less than $30,000 and families with less than $40,000 can access Financial Empowerment and Problem-Solving (FEPS) programming. Through FEPS, people can enroll in basic personal finance courses, receive help in filing income tax returns, and access one-on-one assistance for financial issues, including CRA-related requirements, debt and credit issues, and personal budgeting. In 2017, ACSA delivered 15 financial workshops to 174 people.

ACSA’s Child and Family Centre works with children and parents through early childhood education, workshops, and after-school programs. The programs aim to have children succeed in school and life by ensuring that they receive healthy parenting and social stimulation as well as helping to develop language and math skills.

Chester Le Community Corner offers programming for residents of all ages. ACSA maintains a communal garden to provide residents with fresh food. In 2020, Agincourt Community Services Association created Food Asset Map to help community members find food resources during the COVID-19 lockdown. 

ACSA’s Dorset Park Community Hub houses a food bank, children’s programming, and the Newcomers’ Centre. ACSA reports that 57% of Dorset Park residents have a first language other than English. In 2017, 2,572 recent immigrants to Canada were supported through paperwork assistance, jobs skills training, and online English learning.
