A newcomer family or individual typically works with a complex-case worker for weeks or months to collaboratively develop an action plan aimed at reducing identified settlement and integration barriers. With the support of the complex-case worker, the client will take manageable steps towards addressing those barriers. In some cases, a team-based wraparound process is used.
enhanced Settlement Workers in Schools
One of the first steps taken by newcomer families is to enroll their children in school. Children are then faced with unique integration challenges: they need to make new friends, learn English, and understand the curriculum content that is designed for the Alberta context.
