We Are UNIACTION
OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
Center and Transitional Residence
In June 2018, we announced a private and corporate major fundraising campaign of $ 2 million over 5 years to establish a center and transition residence offering integrated services and programs to help and support newcomers in their transition and integration into Quebec and Canadian society. Our transition residence will offer to single mothers, in precarious situation, a year of lodging and continuous services helping them reduce their financial burden while they navigate their way into their new life.
Through our UniAction Films subsidiary, we produce, promote and distribute films to bring awareness to various social integration and issues. In November 2016, the two times award winning documentary A Moonless Night: Boat People, 40 Years Later, was launched at Cinéma du Parc and played on Télé Québec which depicts the successful integration of the largest wave of immigrants to Canada in the 1980s. The documentary was recognized for its impact in society according to two awards listed on IMDB.
In 2020, we will be releasing the documentary “Coming Home“, that will take us to the discovery of the former Indochina, three countries all sharing a colonial past through the testimonies of their local population. Discover a part of history of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
In March 2020, UniAction Film will finalize its trilogy by returning to Vietnam covering sustainability development and the Vietnamese youth social engagement in the country and worldwide.
