Manantial Neighbourhood Services Inc. (MNSI) is a non-profit charitable organization that provides crisis intervention and newcomer integration services to primarily Latin American immigrants (individuals and families) in the Downsview and surrounding area of Toronto, and in south Vaughan. Manantial is particularly focused on serving the needs of youth and women victims of domestic and other violence, and on providing leadership training to youth and seniors with a view to increasing their self-confidence and ability to help others—especially fellow immigrants—to adjust to life in a new country.

Manantial Neighbourhood Services offers its programs and services in both English and Spanish.


Manantial encourages individuals and families to further develop their life skills, and strives to increase their knowledge and awareness of the rights that all Canadians enjoy and the services available to them in the community.  Above all, we aim to help them to prosper and assume a leadership role in their adopted country.


Manantial's vision is to be a leading community-based agency that promotes and supports a safe, active and healthy lifestyle for individuals and families living in northwest Toronto or south Vaughan, with a particular focus on serving the needs of Latin American immigrants, youth, women, and seniors.
