SETTLEMENTSETTLEMENT SERVICES

Workshops, information and orientation sessions, and direct client service in either individual or group settings, will provide you and your family with support and assistance in settling in your new community. A wide variety of topics are covered, including housing, employment, education, health care, English classes, and housing. We encourage active participation in the community and facilitate the settlement process by bridging local services. We also help with application forms and documentations, and interpretations and translations. 

SETTLEMENT-WORKERS-IN-SCHOOLS

SETTLEMENT WORKERS IN SCHOOLS

This program aims to provide a smooth transition for students as they enter into the Canadian school system, while empowering immigrant and refugee families to actively contribute and integrate into their child’s school community. In-school workers provide orientation, information, cultural interpretation, support and referrals, while acting as the liaison between families and educators.

COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS FOR NEWCOMERS
The program connects community volunteers with new immigrants, either individually or in groups, to provide opportunities for learning, as well as settlement support to make their new country feel like ‘home’. Volunteers connect newcomers to the community and its resources, encourage English practice, and introduce Canadian customs and traditions.
