Refugee Kids Share Their Stories

This powerful video features refugee students talking about their experiences before coming to Canada. Produced by Crossing Borders, a refugee group at Waterloo Collegiate Institute, supervised by Lynn Schulze. Hearing stories like these is why Goodie Goodie wants to help refugee youth by providing jobs in the baking industry.

COMPASS Refugee Centre

We’re super-excited about working with COMPASS Refugee Centre to hire our refugee youth staff.

Celebrating our all French menu


Goodie Goodie is rooted in The French Pastry Works, which was inspired by this film.

Amélie is a 2001 French-language romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Written by Jeunet with Guillaume Laurant, the film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre.

Goodie Goodie grew out of the Peaceworks non-profit organization, and one of their programs that received a lot of attention was "The Peace Signs Project".  Politicians, musicians, school board directors, police/fire chiefs and other community leaders across Canada took part in the project and you can view this amazing collection of photographs by clicking on The Peace Signs Project link.
