School for the kids
The primary focus of the school-based settlement service is to assist parents and their children with first-year settlement needs. The emphasis is on the facilitation of settlement and integration of newcomer families through referrals and cross-cultural education. More specifically, the program is intended to provide:
Initial support and outreach to all newcomer families in the district
Orientation and information workshops on school, community and settlement topics
Needs assessment and action planning through settlement counselling
Referral to appropriate school programs, community services and government resources
Since 1972, we’ve been providing a variety of support services for immigrants and refugees to help them get settled, find careers and learn all they need to know about starting their new lives in Canada.
Through our dedicated staff, volunteers and community partners, we provide settlement services,
education and employment programs for over 20,000 clients every year.
