Community Initiatives & Settlement Services

Settlement Services & Referrals

Our settlement workers are here to provide one-on-one support, answer your questions and help you find the resources you need in your community. Through the help of community partnerships, we work with you to build your network and further enhance your experience in transitioning into a new culture. We will start the settlement process with a one-on-one meeting to assess your needs and create your own settlement plan to help you and your family achieve your goals.

Here are some ways we can help:

  • Complete forms, applications and other documents
  • Navigate local systems such as health care and public school, recreation services, education, income assistance, taxes and more
  • Find programs and services within the community
  • Provide referrals to programs and services including; counselling, employment services, language assessments, children and youth services, legal issues and refugee other specialized services
  • Communicate with employers, landlords, social and government services, legal services and more
  • Learn about Canadian life and culture
  • Assistance and referral for licensing and accreditation
