Finding your way in a new country and a new city can be a challenge no matter what your background or age. We can help you to access community resources and navigate complex systems so that you can get what you need. Our services range from basic information on community activities to well-being services to help you cope in tough times. All of our services are free and confidential.
Here are the ways we can support you as you get settled in your new community:
Our Settlement Services provide information, orientation and supported referral tailored to your specific needs and available in multiple languages.
Moving to a new country and city is stressful. When faced with multiple challenges that threaten the stability of your family, you need someone to help confront these challenges. Our social workers offer a helping hand to navigate complex systems like the legal system, the health system or child services.
Worries, fears, bad dreams or persistent memories of traumatic events are all common occurrences as you adjust to your new home. These stresses can hold you back from meeting your goals. We offer supportive counselling to individuals and families in a safe and confidential setting.
Our Settlement in Schools program helps newcomer kids feel connected and welcomed at school. Whether you are a parent, a youth or a school staff member, we offer useful services and activities that help foster the healthy integration of immigrant families.
