Programs & Services

Newcomers to Canada


It’s not easy moving into a new neighbourhood – especially when you’re moving from afar.

Newcomers to the country who settle in our community are able to access support services from our Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Worker and can attend community events to learn about Canadian culture.

We also offer information sessions on topics such as housing, employment or childcare.

One-on-one appointments are available for individuals and families who would like support in some aspect of their settlement, such as learning how to: use public transit, find childcare, sponsor family, upgrade skills, become a Canadian citizen, and access health, language or employment services.

For more information, read about our programs below or contact our Neighbourhood Immigrant Settlement Worker at (204)938-5962
